Default Re: freewheel adapter for square taper spindle

I thought of doing that too but I did not want to have the front sprocket spinning (more friction). If all else fails Ill do that. also the tandem bike I have has one piece style bottom brackets (2") so it would be an added expense to put a conversion kit on both bottom brackets. I found some BMX bearings that fit the 2" bottom bracket but the inside diameter is 22 mm. Staton sells 7/8" keyed shaft adapters. Does anyone know if a 7/8" shaft will fit a 22 mm opening diameter? its a difference of only 0.008858268". Are tolerences that critcal?
