Everything looked great until I went to buy a Freewheel for the right hand side. Grubee calls for one in their literature that has Metric 35mm X 1mm pitch threads and from what I am finding out, there isn't such a thing available. All the ones out there are 1.375 X 24 tpi American. My distributor is working on a answer for me, but have not heard back from him yet. Anybody else run in to this problem ?

what you will find is that the Grubee spec. 35mm X 1 is for all intents and purposes is the same as American 1.375 X 24 (1.375 times 25.4 = 34.925mm) The first time you install the freewheel there will be some tightness/resistance but continue threading the freewheel on and all will be fine. Be sure to grease the threads before installation.
