Re: Freecoaster fans!!!

It says nothing about No Slack. Just no way to adjust it...
And no other information.
I can shit, call it gold and have guys I pay agree.
More hype, different company. Ill wait for consumer reviews.

+1 I don't mind a little bit of slack but with all that extra crap out of the hub it should be the weight of a cassette hub

Re: Freecoaster fans!!!

Well, since we're on the subject of slack, why would someone run other than full or more?

For street riding that is. 

If I want to engage constantly, wouldn't I just put my cassette back on?

I mean, isn't that the whole point of a free coaster is NOT to back pedal?

Re: Freecoaster fans!!!

i run my coaster with very little slack, and i rarely have my hub engage on me and throw me on the back of my head. im just use to it and know not to put forward pressure on the pedals while rolling backwards. i cant stand the large gap some guys have on their hubs, it just doesnt work for me. its all personal preference, most guys hate the minimal amount of slack i run.

Re: Freecoaster fans!!!

Why would someone not run full slack? Well depending on what hub. Full slack differs. My Stolen had about 1/16 of a crank of a slack Where my federal v1 had about almost a 1/4. And my reloader now. Which is between

I also don't like pedaling 1/4 of a crank before engagement. its similar to that feeling of snapping a chain and smashing your knee into your stem.

Also noticed I back pedal more when I get into fakies (from flat 180's & nose pivot 180) on a smaller frame as opposed my regular 21"

Re: Freecoaster fans!!!

how did you like the Stolen hub? was the Stolen coaster the hub you didnt have to back pedal it to disengage? it had a spring, that you could hear, that would disengage the clutch as soon as you stopped pedaling.

I'm the complete opposite.

I tend to lean way back and over my rear wheel when fakie'ing,  which causes my cranks to engage easily.  So full or nothing for me.

the only time I miss the quick engagement is when doing 360 or 540 cabs.  But I'm trying to learn the bobby kanode style, without engaging, but that way is so hard to pop them off.

Me +3, first time I tried freecoasters I hated them. The full slack caused me pain! My Geisha with min slack and 11t is perfect. I am now going to take the Taska apart and see if it is worth saving!

going back a few posts here. this is exactly why the slack adjustment is necessary, to make it work for all types of riders needs. the new Primo hub doesnt have adjustable slack??? so if a rider buys one and doesnt like the amount it has, then what? he's wasted his money.

anyone have or remember the Primo Bomb coasters form 10-12 years ago??? my buddy had one and it wasnt worth the cardboard it was shipped in.

i rode my buddies and it felt great! he swore it was the shit for the first 4-5 weeks, then swore it was shit for the next few weeks. he took an angle grinder to the spokes and threw the hub in the garbage before the hub was 2 months old. he didnt even street ride it, he's strictly a flat rider.

The last sentence is where my full slack post was angled.  And I understand on certain types of riding it's essential.  But I'm talking street or park. 

I doubt alot of riders including myself want to try full speed 180's and have a millisecond to think, while in the air... Ok, are my cranks perfectly level? Now, am I going to crank back or rollback?

That's where pain comes in with little or no slack.  A direct ass plant from engaging on a high speed 180 roll.  I swear, a few times I thought that I ruptured my butthole.

I also found it's extremely hard for me and others to roll back off a bank or a quarter without full slack. You have to do the quick, "once crank back", which I personally think looks sloppy.

Re: Freecoaster fans!!!

Got a used Rush with external slack adjust,and have a question. I took it apart to regrease,and the allen bolt that has a wrench in it(in pic) is loose. Do I adjust that at all? Is that where I put the lock tight?  Or on the allen bolt inside the axle?

Thanks! I know how to adjust the slack,just curious about that internal screw. I can't seem to find any diagrams of these types of freecoasters. I'm looking to add an acb and not sure where to put it.
