    DA hub help

    I've struggled to find a clear answer to this in my searches of the forum and the web...

    Is it possible to put a single speed free wheel on this model of Dura Ace hub?

    FH-7400 6 speed freehub - threaded for ye-olde style rear gear freewheel.

    Yes. If it's threaded for a freewheel then it's not a freehub. A freehub is where the ratcheting mech is built into the hub body, and a splined cassette body made up of splined cogs slides on to the freehub body.

    If it's threaded for a freewheel, then you can thread a freewheel on it, whether that freewheel has one cog or 6 cogs.

    Thanks.

    That much I worked out, but I just wasn't sure about stuff like the threading and if that was compatible with the modern/commonly available single speed freewheels.
