I wouldn't skip it.They wouldn't add an extra cost if it wasn't needed.

One plus for installing it is that you can really tighten the crank bolts without worrying about messing up the bearings.

If you want to skip it for tightening the cranks so they don't move you can just install the washer and trim it a mm more than needed,you will have the same result but with safety.Wouldn't do that either.Best way to do it is with the Vocal DRS.

The weight of the washer is laughable,if you get to the point that you count such weight differences start thinking about removing the paint from your frame and parts,you could save 100 more grams if you raw your whole bike!

Id go for it man, the TI FEC is really really good, light and strong. I only have 2 complaints. First was that I needed to add one of the included washers behind the driver bc of some occasional ghost pedaling. They even include the washer just in case you need it. Also sometimes it has skipped and taken an additional time to engage. But never on a ride out, just one time if that and makes a pop noise as it engages into the next engagement point. No freecoaster is perfect but the FEC is one of the best

Iím not looking for a crankset (yet), the Hollowflats have suited me perfectly for a good while. I am a heavier rider and they have stayed firm. I was just looking at new cranksets and weights and wondered why none come close to the Hollowflats. I guess it could be attributed to suit street riders that need them stronger than flatland riders. :beer:

If someone is serious about getting (back) into riding then yea custom is most likely the way to go. But if you were just testing the waters and not sure iii it was something that was gonna stick then the prebuilt was not a bad way to go.

Either way I wouldn't kick yourself too much. As flatlanders we tend to try out a whole bunch of different setups before we start to realize what it is exactly we want geometry wise, even then these preferences usually change over time anyways. So even if you had gone custom initially it's still likely you would be upgrading or trying different things anyways unless you already knew ahead of time precisely want you wanted. So maybe going prebuilt wasn't such a bad idea, it did get rolling (as you say) and now you can slowly switch stuff out as needed or as you see fit.

Guess I'm lucky to not to have come from anything else. The original didn't really work at all and this is my first flat bike.


In retrospect I think I should have gone custom build from the beginning. Already replaced the rear hub and bars and the stem and cranks are an eyesore but I did get rolling day 1 for $550.
