its a very complicated conversion though. heres how i would do it.
1. take rim from front of bike
2. put it at the back of bike
3. there it is. a front rim is now a rear rim.

strangely however, hubs cannot be converted by this technique. they require the following procedure:
1. unscrew each and every spoke from the rim to release hub from front wheel.
2. repeat procedure for rear wheel
3. place rear hub into front rim, lacing spokes accordingly
4. repeat process for front hub.
5. there it is. your front rim has now become the rear rim! surprisingly, it will look the same as the rear rim which is now the front rim.

why do you want to do this anyways. you cant convery a rear hub assebly into a front free wheel asembly, you would have to do what loco customs says.

I concur, it'd be much cheaper to just buy a rear one instead of converting it, not worth the time to unlace the spokes just for hub conversion.
