not to be a nit-picker, but....generally, to me and many others, urban assault refers to MTBs used in urban environments to perform crazy stunts, such as large drop-offs, gaps, and hucks. i hope you dont plan on using your road frame for this!!
i think what you intend to build is just a SS road bike, nothing urban assaulty about it!
and now a reply to your original question....if you want a freewheel that is silent, consider getting a coaster brake hub, and if you dont want it to be a coaster brake you can get an un-brake for it, or you can just get a coaster hub w/out the brake built it. there are no ratcheting mechanisms in coaster hubs. BMX flatlanders like to use them bc it enables them to roll backwards with out the pedals back-pedaling. that would be a nifty trick to learn on a SS roadie!
