    Just buy a single speed kit.

    Or cog if you have the spacers.

    You just need a SS cog as comes with a SS conversion kit.

    All the big sites do them take you pick. As to what size you need that is up to you.

    In your original post you said you wanted a cog to go on a "normal splined cassette hub" you dont need a freewheel cog they are normally only for hubs with a screw thread. The splined part is the freehub. Do you mean a threaded hub if you do just google BMX or single speed freewheel or go on ebay tons of them about last one I bought cost me a tenner.

  • hi again, maybe slightly off topic but can anyone now direct me towards a really cheap 35mm wide rim, with a 135mm spacing and a 10mm bolt through or Qr, doesn't matter if its single speed or cassette (already got the conversion kit for single speed)

    would be grateful for any help
  • hi again guys,

    not really for what you say in this topic.

    Cheap, nasty and about the same weight as an anvil. Save your money.
