Campy C-Record High Flange Track HubsViqbang

I have a set of the hubs above that I purchased to build a new fixed wheelset. . .

My doctor (yes, she is a cyclist) has recommended against spending as much time on the fixie (i.e. quit racing on the track, get rid of the fixies, etc.) But...She has approved single-speed.

Has anyone ever tried threading a single-speed freewheel onto a hub built for a track cog? It is single-sided and designed for a cog/lockring. I've considered throwing a free-wheel on and using a fair bit of locktite. . .but I would love some anecdotal evidence.

It screws right on, you just have a little less thread...TFerguson

It's certainly much safer than the reverse (fixed gear on freehub threads with non-reversed "locknut") that I see on this board all the time.

It may move the rear of the chain over a couple of mm though.

I've done it with Dura Ace high flange hubsDave Hickey

It works perfect. Low flange doesn't work as well because the freewheel hits the spoke. Dura Ace works fine, I don't think Campy would be a problem
get a new doctor. nmdesmo
