RE:AGE / VALUE:   Old School BMX flip flop hub question

Posted by Gralyn on 11/11/2008 at  6:43:15 AM

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.
