  • My Clickster is spinning equally as well in drive as freewheel.
    Not the best return on investment tbh.
    What should I get?

  • What should I get?

    Advice from somebody who has used a single freewheel in the past 50 years.

  • U OK HUN?

    I ride my bike in Scotland I like my legs to get a rest on the downs. You soft Southern snowflakes don't know you're born.

    All those flatlands. :)

    Suntour, Shimano, Sturmey Archer?

  • Check out trials freewheels? I got a trialtech one and it seems nice as screw on freewheels go

  • I like the nos suntour bmx ones if you can find them. CKs are obviously good but I couldn’t stand the racket.

  • U OK HUN?

    Fine thanks. I did ride a bike with a freewheel a couple of years ago, but it was a cassette hub. As I say, the last single freewheel I used was on the bike which was replaced by my first multi-gear bike in the early 1970s, so I don't have any experience of what might be good.

  • Much appreciated.

  • So you got a freewheel which has high engagement points and now wanna switch out?

    Get a WI red or don't bother with any other freewheel, I've busted Shimano, ACS, Sturmey Archer etc and WI is still the best.

  • Also, bit of courtesy goes a long way, you are asking in a thread of which +gbj_tester is the judge, jury and executor.

  • Sounds like the clickster is broken and isn't engaging. I've got along well with a couple of trials ones off tartybikes but they're close to WI prices.

    Has there been an attempt to flush out the clickster and get some more lube in it or did all the pawls explode inside.

  • tester is the judge, jury and executor

    Not strictly true, since I don't own this thread. If I did, I'd have been its executioner a long time ago 🙂

  • Detonation, can of worms..

    I may revert back to Shimano but that infrequent tick under load makes me feel like I'm riding my Raleigh Strika again.😁

  • Suit yourself then...
