    BMX freewheels???

    Sheldon Brown's website sells an AC racing 15 tooth freewheel that is the smallest you can get, it says. And it says right above the advertised freewheel that it will work even on BMX hubs. But I know that they make BMX freewheels with 13 teeth....what am i missing?

    As seen here: (15 tooth)

    And here: (13 tooth)

    Most freewheels smaller than 16t are metric. They use a different smaller diameter hub thread. Fit on one side of some BMX flip flop hubs but no mtb SS hubs.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Shiggy is right.

    Be warned I've heard the 15s that fit normal threads don't last as long as a 16 would.
