Trouble threading lockring
#1
I'm trying to put cog and lockring on a Gipiemme hub and it's not working. The lockring seems to have a different thread. Anyone have an idea what the problem might be? Thanks in advance.

fixed gear lock rings have reversed thread. Are you threading it on the right way?

ok, I will take a pic later. It's puzzling because the cog and lockring came as a set. The cog threads but the lockring doesn't.

yes, I have tried reverse threading it.
here's a pic guys. I don't know if it will help. I find it strange that the cog threads but the lockring wont. Thanks for all the help.

as I remember, from a long time ago!, a fixed hub has 2 different dia. threads, 1 rh for the fixed cog and 1 lh and smaller for the lockring. Your hub looks as though it only has 1 thread dia? thus intended for a freewheel, not a fixed.
Note that these threads can vary depending on country of origin of the hub, Gipiemme probably has Italian threads.
