Title: Prototype EZRA Karl Poynter signature freecoaster
Post by: out~riding on September 08, 2011, 12:43:32 AM
I just spotted this bike check on Ridebmx: http://bmx.transworld.net/1000136852/features/karl-poynter-bike-check-3/ (http://bmx.transworld.net/1000136852/features/karl-poynter-bike-check-3/)

You’ve been working on a signature freecoaster hub for a while now, and have even switched sponsors in the middle of its development…Is it still in the works? Give us the latest update on it.

 My signature free-coaster will definitely still be happening and I couldn’t be more excited. It will be an all-new design with some really cool features produced by my parts sponsor EZRA BMX. The progress has been great, and we expect to have it available by late 2011. EZRA and I have been working overtime on it to say the least. You can be on the lookout for further details on [url=http://www.ezrabmx.com]www.ezrabmx.com ([url]http://www.ezrabmx.com/[/url])[/url], my fan page [url=http://www.facebook.com/karlpoynterfanpage]www.facebook.com/karlpoynterfanpage[/url] ([url]http://bmx.transworld.net/1000136852/features/karl-poynter-bike-check-3/www.facebook.com/karlpoynterfanpage[/url]), or by following me on twitter, @KarlQPoynter ([url]http://www.twitter.com/KarlQPoynter[/url]).

looking at the size and shape it promises to be a very compact and therefore light system.
I'm very curious...

Let's all keep in mind that "street" freecoaster users are always standing on the pedals...so they are not as sensitive to ghost pedaling in any direction...they may only be paying attention to the size of gap, and whether or not it explodes!

You're rigth but geez, take another look at that glass, it might be half full.
I'm not going to shoot this this one down before I know on which principle it works.

Could this be the the same design as the Eclat f/c...using pawls. I'm also anxious to see how both of these work.

I don't know if this hub has anything to do with the Eclat prototype..

They look similar and they both don't have a big hub shell...We'll just have to wait and see...

f*ck it all,just throw your chain and you have the best freecoaster available.or even lighter if you put a front wheel on the back.and maybe one pound lighter to say in some occasions.and more if you add the chain!

I'd guess that this is very similar to the eclat freecoaster.  Same hub shape etc...  Maybe just rebranded..  Who cares! Hopefully they work as well as they look!
