Again, slop/play/gap isnt always a bad thing (if you actually ride and fakie a lot) most riders I know who do a ton of fakies and are better riders than myself all prefer slack.

I finally got to ride a buddies far east coaster, definitely doesn't work for me. All i got out of it was two nicks on my right knee. Haha!

What type is the far east?  and what type is the U-Free ?

I was looking at swapping to the far east but not sure

I had far east on the brain! I rode a buddies free night planetary coaster, and it definitely wont work for me.

All of my early riding was Coaster Brake, and then high engagement Freewheels. I can live without high engagement, but I need engagement while rolling backwards. For me, clutch with tight slack works very well. I'm also nowhere near the level most of the great riders you see, riding my style of OS infused with bits of NS.

Re: Freecoaster fans!!!

Its all subjective to the rider.. Im so glad theyve made it to zero slack.. for the same reason Matt said expecting to hit the pedal and it be ready to move is pertinent imo, dont need to be smashing knees because of a ton of slack.

Re: Freecoaster fans!!!

As my riding changed over time, what i need out my coaster has changed. Nothing drastic, i just kept adding slack to my alienation. I don't like a ton of slack, but running minimal like i did years ago was getting dangerous. For me the clutch based is what i need for the way i like to ride. The ability to adjust the slack so i shouldn't engage accidentally, but i can still use pedal press, is the balance for me.

Re: Freecoaster fans!!!

Hey, has anyone tried the GT NBS freecoaster wheel? 90 degree engagement? Smooth?

Yeppers, that's why I'm asking minimal to no information on their site or the net. Various retailer sites just parrot back GT site info, which is minimal.
