Another basic question, as I am confusing myself
I have a 1988 Peugeot racer. I bought a new freewheel for it, but in the process of attaching it I realised the back wheel is pretty screwed up - so i'd like to just replace the whole wheel.
All the rear wheels I have looked at say they can accept a 5,6,7 or 8 speed freewheel. If I used the 6 speed freewheel I already have, would I need anything else? I get the impression I need a spacer? Or do I just get a 8 speed freewheel at the same time?
If I got an 8 speed would there be deraileur issues? I have friction gears, so moving between cogs not an issue as it would be with indexed shifting.

My initial plan of fixing this up cheaply isnt going too well!
