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)

Install threaded freewheel/cassette on flip flop wheel?

Hi,

Just windering if I can install a threaded freewheel on a flip flop wheel? I am building a bike for the GF and she wants the color of those track/fixed wheelset but wanted a multi gear.

Will appreciate any help.

Yes you can.
But the wheel will have to be re-dished/re-spaced.
It would be much easier to buy the right wheel.

Enjoy

if you have expirience working on wheels redishing it is pretty easy, or you could get a proper hub laced to a colorful rim
