Bah! I was starting to suspect as much. I thought since the bike was only
4yrs old it wouldn't be a freewheel.

I take it this means that cassettes and freewheels are not interchangable
and if I want to put a cassette on I'd need a new hub?

Thanks for the info

I had a nice ride over the Downs today so I'm in a benevolent mood ;-)

Maybe the wine is getting to me, but the first time I read this advice I
thought a workmate was a colleague from work. A very understanding chap,
I was thinking.

*How* understanding depending on where you're supposed to trap the
chain, I suppose. Or is the wine getting to me as well?

Yes. And at that point its probably easier to get a new wheel.

There are various freewheel 7-speeds available, so if its either replacing
something due to wear, or if you want a reasonably normal set of ratios, you
can get the bits.
