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)

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

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

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.
