    Freewheel on flip flop

    Can I run two freewheels on my flip flop? That is... can I install a freewheel on the fixed side of the hub and still have enough threads to be strong enough to ride? I've got a 20t on the freewheel side right now but would like to put a 16t freewheel on the fixed side. Will this work?

    I recommend you don't. Your hub will get messed up. So will your freewheel.

    I contacted my lbs when I got so few replies here and they said the same thing. I didn't do it and happy I didn't. Thanks cannotaim.
