AGE / VALUE:   Old School BMX flip flop hub question posted by: Gralyn on 11/8/2008 at 6:59:13 PM
I'm mostly on the Vintage Lightweight discussion group - but lately, I ended up with this flip flop hub - which I understand is from an old BMX bike. I have been converting some of my old lightweight 10-speed bikes to fixed gear single speed. I got this hub - thinking it was a flip flop hub I could use for a track bike / fixed gear road bike, etc. However, when I received the hub - the first thing I noticed was that there wasn't a threaded area for the lock ring. There were threads on each end of the hub - but no smaller threaded diameter at one end for a lock ring. A track hub, or a single speed free wheel cog will fit on one end - but the other end has a much smaller thread diameter - way too small for a typical track hub or free wheel cassette.

My question is: What would have been installed on this hub? A single speed free wheel on one end maybe .....and then what went on the other end? I could possibly use it if say, there were single speed free wheels that would fit to the smaller threaded end - then I could put a track cog on the other end. Or, if there were single cogs made that would screw onto the smaller threaded end - then I could put a single speed free wheel on the standard threaded side.

Someone please educate me on these old BMX hubs. Thanks

OK, I did some research and found that the smaller threaded side of the hub is for a single speed freewheel. The reason for the small thread diameter is so a smaller tooth count cog - on the standard size thread diameter - the smallest cog you can get is maybe 15 or 16.....the smaller thread allows maybe 13 or 14 teeth. Both sides of the hub are for free wheels.

AGE / VALUE:   Help posted by: Dalelwry on 11/6/2008 at 6:06:55 PM
I have what I think is a mid to late 80's GT Frame. But I really have no idea. It is all crome with no identification markings on it except for 2 sets of numbers on the front of the frame. They are N2975469 and M0 005366. Could you please point me in the right direction on finding out what I have.

Do you still have that frame and is the main down tube bent at the top towards the head tube or is it straight to the tube? You may have a racing frame or a freestyle frame

Everything is straight. I have come across what I think are the fork and neck. The fork has the number 5 on both sides of it . The neck was made by SR and has Japan c-85 with a height of 0.833 not that that matters. That 2nd serial code number should have been M05 005366
