Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

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.
