campag hub / regina 5 speed block

Hi
I have some wheels arriving next week and am looking to fit a 5 speed block (is block the right word is it a cassette?)

The wheels have Campag Nuovo Tipo large flange hubs, (Iím guessing they date from the mid 70ís) which I believe are designed to be used with a screw on block

Iíd like to fit a regina 5 speed block, is there just one type of fixing / thread on these old campag hubs?

When looking at blocks what type should I be looking for? Iíve seen lost of different things like French threads etc which has got me confused

Pete

Pete, "Campag", "block" and "large flange" are all correct, especially if you're British and they all came before the U.S. equivalents "Campy", "freewheel" and "high flange". (For more semantics, go to the Pet Peeves thread.

Whether a 5-speed is the best choice depends on your rear spacing and over-locknut measurement. If the rear hub is English threaded, both English or Italian thread blocks will work if you don't plan to switch them too often.

Some things we can't answer yet. When you receive the wheels you'll need to look at the space between the flange and the freewheel threading. I'm not sure the NTs are marked there, but they might be. If marked, hopefully it will say 1.37*24, that's the most common threading and will make your life easier. If you don't have the freewheel (block) yet, don't buy one. And if you might prefer 6 speeds, Suntour made an "Ultra6" that will fit in the 5 speed's place.

Hi guys

Got the wheels here in front of me, doesn't appear to be any markings on the threads or hub itself

The wheel fits in my frame which has a 120mm spacing

The original ebay listing stated ISO threading if that helps?

The Regina freewheel is more period correct, but you'll like the way it shifts better with a Shimano Uniglide.

"Freewheel" is the word you are looking for.

I have a Regina five speed freewheel on my 1975 bike. I like the way it shifts better than an Ultra-6 frewheel.
