As recent as 2003, 7 speed hybrids were coming with Freewheels. I used mine on my SS w/ a Shimano BMX freewheel. Finding some around might not be so hard. They might be a little wide, mines 622 x 20, so I don't think I'll ever try a 25mm tire. But, if you were thinking cruiser, then the little extra width might not matter. I think the hub thing started more with 8 speed than with a particular year, but I may be wrong on that.
