Good freewheel

PostedJuly 7, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight
Bought this put on my single speed fixie as I am taking part in a charity bike ride. It will be unsafe to ride with single speed to a hill and come down , this freewheel is perfect I could feel the difference. It's making a lilttle noise in the beginning but once it's get used its fine. I will recommend.

Easy to install, quiet

PostedApril 19, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Comfortable
Quiet on the road, easy to screw on - no need to do it tight though as it tightens as you pedal. Use grease on cogs!

No problems so far

PostedFebruary 6, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
This is my first time riding a single-speed, wasn't overly keen on going fixed wheel so I purchased a freewheel instead. I've done in excess of 250 miles and so far I have no complaints about the freewheel. All is in working order, let's hope it stays that way!

Simple product that's difficult to get wrong. I am required to add more text, but...I can't; this is a cog!

Silent Freewheel

PostedAugust 6, 2012
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Looks great
Cons: Poor quality, wobbly
I like this freewheel cause very silent, I almost can't hear any sound and looks great.
The quality of the teeth is good.
The cons is the freewheel wobbly and the bearing is no good.
I only ride approx 200km not sure about durability yet.
