    Freehub vs Freewheel?

    I guess there's a difference, but I have no idea what it is. Can anyone help me out? I'm mainly curious from the perspective of single speeds if that matters.

    a freewheel threads into the rear hub and is an older design and a freehub the casstette slides onto the hub and is secured with a lock ring which is your highest gear -smallest cog
