Looking for a 44t freewheel axle

Searching found a 36 tooth from boygofast ebay #190233901530 but I can't seem to find a supplier that can get me a 44t sprocket for this. I got a local guy that can lace me up a strong 26 inch rim with heavy spokes and a freewheel sprocket would be really cool on Cronus for 75 bucks.
Also,looking at that pic,how is that sprocket secured to that freewheel nut?
I'm serious about getting fit and riding with no engine when I can but although my engine on Cronus has little drag when turned off a freewheel sprocket would have nearly no drag I would think and my gear box won't be spinning at 100 mph when I'm screaming down a hill doing 60 lol.
Help?

The 36t sprocket is threaded onto the freewheel body. To do a 44t you could bolt the 44t to the 36t. Or you could look at the Grubee HD HUb/Axle the freewheel that comes with it has a flange around the body to bolt the sprockets to. You will probably need to make the center hole of the 44t sprocket larger for either method.

There is a Grubee 44T model. I'm not sure if anyone sells them here anymore but I did buy one from bicycle-engines.com a long while back. I have seen them on ebay from time to time as well. Just gotta keep looking. Good luck! :)

AARGH! The Grubee site has it but for wholesale only!

That is EXACTLY what I'm looking for,brakes and all even.

Wait. That looks like a fixed hub. AAARGH!

I'm not sure what you mean by fixed but the Grubee hub shown comes set up to be used with a single speed freewheel. but it can be made to work with a multi speed freewheel by flipping the axle and addind a spacer or two to the right side. This is the hub that Alaskavan used on his tadpole trike, and he performed the modification to make it work with the multispeed freewheel. He documented the process with plenty of photos here. bicycle-engines.com had these hubs back in the fall. They were pretty reasonable $50.00 I think.

Is the grubee hub like this hub?Picture 4.jpg

That one in the pic is a fixed hub.

The boygofast hub is a freewheel(flip flop) hub.

I know our vendors probably don't have it now but can any vendors chime in on availability?

What is it about the the one in the pic makes you say it is a "fixed hub". please provide a defination of what you mean. The discription says it can be eithe with or with out a freewheel for the driven sprocket?
