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

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