Cassette backwheel
« on: August 29, 2019, 06:10:28 AM »
On a newer video it sounded like a riders rear wheel was clicking when they were riding around as if they have a cassette but then during back wheel tricks there pedals aren't spinning when rolling backwards.


Am I imagining the noise? Or maybe the sound is coming from somebody off camera, I don't know. Just curious to see if somebody has designed a cassette freecoaster hybrid that I hadn't heard about yet. Or maybe they had a playing card or something similar that was hitting the spokes causing the noise?


I'll try to find which video I remember hearing this in, I can't remember at the moment.

probably a freecoaster based on pawls design and not clutch principle like the Nankai or KHE style freecoaster (and many other)


ie: see at 3:32 regarding the Z-coaster Profile hub =

Could it be that the cameraman is riding on a bike with a cassette?

Hahah I think it's that Z-coaster. Wow first time seeing that hub in action.

Thanks guys, I'm betting it was the z coaster. Seems pretty cool.

The FEC freecoaster clicks like a cassette too.

I have a Madera Gulf freecoaster which is essentially the same as a Z-Coaster, it's pretty fun but I think needs setting up with more slack for my tastes.

Im much happier with my FEC compared to the Zcoaster when I had it. Something must have been off with profile hubs that month because both the front and rear hub rolled like dog sh*

The FEC is stupid light and rolls for days
