    There are spacer kits for freehubs, but I don't know of any screw-on freewheels that are wider to compensate.
    The bums will always lose.

    Sounds like you need a simple single speed cassette hub. King makes his extra wide for adequate chainline adjustment.

    http://surlybikes.com/parts/fixxer/ not SS but I think it fixes the spacing issue.

    eh, but if you do that to your road bike then you're stuck with vertical dropouts. I suppose it's good for making stripped threads replaceable.
