    Look close that 44 tooth sprocket does not screw onto the flip/flop hub--it bolts to the holes in the hub flange with the spacer.still a cool setup.I made a large screw on by buying a freewheel from an electric scooter(off ebay)Their freewheel is just like the single freewheel on a bike only they come with a flange(no teeth) to bolt a sprocket to---used a large gear off a cluster(36 tooth)

  5. HI,
    About the same could be achieved by bolting a sprocket onto the disc portion of a disc brake hub.....A Shimano Hub would probably be of higher quality AND offer the benefit of multiple gears (i.e. casette)....A soon to be available adapter will help those with frames that have rear stay interference issues when bolting the sprocket to the disc section of the disc brake hub...
    Hope this helps you.

    Sounds like an excellent idea and is actually what i was originally going to use, but i already have a flip/flop rear hub and i cant spend more money to purchase a disc brake hub, any other ideas or where/ how to obtain a rear freewheel or fixed sprocket?
