I thought it was a generally accepted fact that since a spare bivalent could be used for either the front or the back (and people got spare bivalent wheels) that there is a scarcity of freewheels for the number of wheels/hubs in existence.

Over the years I have seen spares of all the parts for the bivalent system except bivalent compatible freewheel bodies.

But then again Harvey, maybe I missed your emoticon for 'tongue in cheek' and the joke is on me?
