    Another fixed/freewheel thread. Need some input.

    Here's pics of my rear wheel:

    100_0070.jpg100_0071.jpg

    This is a flip/flop wheel from what I understand. Do I just need to add a cog to the other side? Is there anything else I need to keep in mind while doing this, like aligning the chain, etc?

    For the time being I want to keep the freewheel intact until I decide if I want to stay fixed or not.

    Many thanks in advance.
    Best regards - steve

    Yeah, just throw on a cog and lockring. You shouldn't have any chainline issues.

    Thanks for the help. No spacers or anything?

    I am looking at "track cogs." I take it that the threading is universal, right?

    I most likely will order from Jenson, Is there anywhere else I should look for parts?

    Sorry for all the questions!

    Any cog with standard English threading will work on that hub.

    As Nagrom said, all you need is a cog and lockring and it should be good to go.

    Your hub isn't a Phil Wood or anything that requires a special lockring, just get your cog in the proper thickness for your chain (1/8 or 3/32) and a standard ISO threaded lockring, not Campagnolo standard.

    This is very helpful. I have a good bike maintenance book from Park Tool but there's not a lot about SS and FG. I am looking one ebay as there appears to be some good prices there.

    Yeah, I've been guilty of that. I just hate doing things twice or wrecking something when I could have just asked someone who knows.

    And you seek advice on the internet?

    Seriously, if anyone understands this it's me. Aussie is a small enough gene pool to start with, let alone something that doesn't fit the popular understand of "cycling". Sorry, I don't wear lycra, none of my bikes are are made out of plastic or recycled coke cans and I regard usefullness as more important than fashion or wot the interexpertzsez.

    The first important skill is knowing who to ask for advice
    The second is to know who to listen to.
    The most important is to understand what's bulldust and what's good advice. Typically, the more technical the advice sounds, the less accurate it is to pushies, geared or otherwise, really are simple beasts.

    Well put, but at least I am asking HERE where I've come to know that most folks in this forum know what they are doing. Or at least have done something before.

    Very true. You could have asked on reddit.
