Is there any way to make this freewheel though?
You can thread on a single speed freewheel.
I never got the appeal of fixed-gears
If you don't like fixed gears, this hub, even with a FW attached, would be a poor choice. The ratios are goofy, with the 1st to 2nd shift being 20% and the 2nd to 3rd being 33.3%. For a freewheeling hub you would want these reversed.
I believe these ratios only make sense if you ride in 2nd most of the time even though 3rd is direct. Since you can't coast it will be nice to have a very high 3rd gear for downhills.
