    as long as I dont go over $200 on the wheels, I guess I can live with it. heavy duty wheels are usually not cheap.

    If you could live without the cassette, these are:

    A cassette hub is stronger hub because the bearings are farther apart.

    Looks like a threaded freewheel to me.

    without a cassette, I would not be able to install a shift kit, which is the entire purpose of rebuilding my bike and converting it to multi-speed. I already have a heavy duty coaster wheel, so there would be no point in buying a new rear wheel if it doesnt have a cassette. im not just replacing the wheel I have, im upgrading to a totally different setup. I emailed chainganglowrider, and they do not carry any cassette hubs. I am going to buy a 26" cassette hub with 12g spokes. im all set. mods, you can close thhis thread.

    Thanks for the info, I did not realize a shift kit would not work with a 6 (cog)
    speed threaded freewheel hub.

    its really not important now, since I have chosen the wheel setup that I want, and I dont need any more help with it.
