Default Re: which freewheel ?

It is normal bmx standard size. The threads on the hub typically go all the way to a point which makes for sort of an interference fit. If you have a drill w/ some sort of scotch brite attachment or wire wheel or somethin' to knock the top of the threads down going w/ the thread direction; nothing extreme just a li'l dulling of the point. Maybe some fine emery over the tops. Then thread it on and off an extra 1/4 turn at a time checking your threads each time. If your cross threading you can tell before you cause any damage. Go easy it shouldn't resist much w/ a large wrench on the removal tool, if it does, stop and figure out what's wrong.
