    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

    You'll see. Unless you drilled out your eyes because they were too heavy.
