Hi, I am very new to fixed/single gear.

I purchased a Pista recently- the rear hub is a Soma fixed hub with 2 fixed cogs on each side. I want to change out one fixed cog with a freewheel cog, but my LBS told me that I need a freewheel hub.

Can I not just replace the fixed with freewheel cog? Or does it have different threads?

Thanks in advanced.

you can, as long as the fw is not really small, like 13 or 14... you might want to make sure you've got a rear brake
