Thanks for the replies!

Sadly I couldn't get the chain to fit both (or atleast with ease). If the 17t was on with the wheel furthest away on the dropouts, the 20t could fit, yes, but it was slammed so much that with the wheel furthest in to the dropout, I still could not nudge the chain off the chainring or freewheel. It would get stuck and start scratching into the cog or chainring when taking the chain off. I'd then be forced to use a chainbreaker to take off the chain.

I've decided to buy two masterlinks and use two chains. Thanks again for the advice, here's the bike finished with brakes and cables routed! Pretty happy with how it turned out. I will be commuting in SF everyday, hence the need for a freewheel with a lower ratio. Camera Upload - Album on Imgur
