    Dual sided freewheel

    Does anyone know of a place that sells a built, rear wheel w/ a dual sided freewheel? Right now mines an 18T but would like to have option for 16T and 14T instead. Thanks!

    Do you mean like a flip/flop hub that can carry a FW on both sides, that you can flop around on the trail? If that is the case, you can get a wheel built up around a Surly hub or some other that is threaded on both sides.

    Try http://www.webcyclery.com and go to Mean Todd's custom wheel builder tool.

    Yes, like a flip/flop but w/ FW on both sides. I'd like Surly, but I'm trying to go cheap on this one...

    You are going to need a BMX flipflop hub to be able to use a 14t FW. FWs smaller than 16t use small diameter threads and "metric" FWs. http://aebike.com/site/page.cfm?PageID=30&Category=72
    You would then need to put in a longer axle.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Good info. That'll kill my 14T idea. I'll stick to 16T/18T.

    I'm not sure how much cheaper you can expect...$102-124 for a built singlespeed rear
    wheel is pretty darn cheap.

    I can't think of any cheaper options...

    not only that...

    but if you go with a BMX hub, chainline would be a mess if you want to flip and flop that 120 mm spaced BMX hub respaced to 135.

    This hub accepts a mtb freewheel and a BMX freewheel....not sure if you can get a built wheel from them, but the hub is sweet

    Look into the..

    look into a woodman/novatech/planet x singlespeed cassette hub. You can run both a 14 and 16 tooth cogs at the same time, the barrel is long enough to ft both cogs, a spacer, and the lock ring. I had a old dura ace 9sp ( 3 largest cogs) on mine and it worked.
