Re: Freecoaster fans!!!

Since I dont do anything the easy way! I wanted a 48h freecoaster with 3/8 axles. The Taska is the only one I found that fits that bill. So I decided to purchase a Geisha 48h hub and install my Reverse guts. Does anyone know  if it will work?  What has to be changed to put in a 3/8 axle? Or should I grind flats on the Axle? I do not want to grind out my frame dropouts.
Any Ideas?

Re: Freecoaster fans!!!

^ my 48H Geisha Lite is an AWESOME FC. Why are you thinking of pulling the guts out of the KHE and replacing them with the Reverse guts?? Just curious...

Alot of the khe internals can be swapped.You should email or call Pat at Flatlandfuel.com to be sure.He has a gehisha axel the takes either 3/8 or 14mm studs. check out the site . http://flatlandfuel.com/hubs-parts.aspx
As far as ghosting , khes need to be well greased to prevent this in my experience.

I just bought the Geisha shell only for the 48h option. My reverse is 36h and all my wheels are 48's  That is why I want to swap it over.

Re: Freecoaster fans!!!

Just installed the adjustable axle into my Reverse V2 hub on my Sunday Forecaster.  So far so good.

Re: Freecoaster fans!!!

It looked like alot of back pedaling hmm There should be no reason to back pedal at all, the clip didn`t show enough to be useful.

Bring both to me. Ill do it.  Should just need to make sure it requires the same size O.D of the bearing.

But 36h is strong enough with today's rims.

And it could be just a reflex for him to automatically backpedal. I know I tend to do a quick back pedal to get my feet in the right placement for half cab fun on my coaster.  Just like I always do it opposite footed with a cassette

Re: Freecoaster fans!!!

Re: Freecoaster fans!!!

I just saw an interesting video for the new Profile Freecoaster Cassette hub. I have no clue how it works but it clicks like a normal hub but can roll bacwwards? In the vid I saw (I think it was on vitalbmx Facebook link) it looked like the rider had to backpedal one time for the cassette to disengage and roll back. But I'm not sure. It looks interesting

Re: Freecoaster fans!!!

I know,,,,, I'm an idiot....
I didn't see the link posted above...

That hub looks interesting although I would have to agree that I'd prefer that I didn't have to backpedal to disengage like a traditional freecoaster hub.

Re: Freecoaster fans!!!

As seen on The Merged.  Not sure how well a no adjustable slack coaster will do.

http://themerged.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/2T0W5631.jpg

Primo just dropped some knowledge on their new Freemix Freecoaster that should be out next month! I’m liking the idea of those snap-on nylon hub guards.

Our first freecoaster hub in a very long time the FREEMIX will be available next month and we figured this would be a good time to talk a bit about it. Our goal with this hub was to make the most basic coaster possible because as many of you may already know these hubs can be a bit confusing once disassembled. This is why our coaster come with no adjustable slack. By removing any adjustable pieces you are left with a longer lasting hub that requires less maintenance.

The second detail we felt was very important was to offer the FREEMIX as a complete wheel as well since we know how inconvenient it can be building up a whole new wheel just to see what coasting feels like. If that’s not enough for you we have a special treat to top it all off. All Primo hubs including but not limited to the FREEMIX now have snap on nylon hub guards. If you have never grinded a rail or ledge before with a nylon hub guard you are truly missing out on the smoothest grind possible. The new DSG and NDSG guards are available separately for our FREEMIX and REMIX hubs in early 2014. If you are serious about wanting to get into riding a coaster do your research, the FREEMIX has been tested by nearly the entire Primo Pro team for over a year now and has been put to work. Check our recent Primo Blazers edit to see it in action.
