6 speed is certainly wider than 5 .. Frame has ro be spread wider to get a wheel with that now wider axle in..


Why not just get a nicer quality 5 speed freewheel .. Sun Race , IRD.. Shimano-Singapore..


I suspect the (unstated) bike selling price was low, allowed by a parts pick with cost as the most important criteria..
