    So I have a 27" wheeled bike which I want to make single speed, but retro stuff is new to me as I'm used to modern :wacko:
    I'm getting a new wheelset, but all 27" wheels are freewheel.

    Would the below cog work?

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    EDIT: Would it run straight away if I screw on the cog and be aligned okay, or will I have to re-dish and re-space the wheel?

    Yeah it will fit,should'nt be a problem re the chainline,
    most chainline problems are with trying to convert mtbs to s/s,
    bear in mind it wont last long, the quality of freewheels is abysmal these days
