New or old, freewheel or casette?
I have a Peugeot PX10L (if I remember correctly) and have been upgrading everything as it breaks since I bought it in a lousy condition last summer (was cheap). Recently, the Helicomatic freewheel started slipping and it became a lot worse in few days. I tried to soak it in WD-40 and then lube it up but nothing changed, except it made more noise, before it had been absolutely silent when coasting! I don't think it would make any sense trying to open the freewheel to fix so I now have the following options:
A. Buy a Helicomatic freewheel, with both hubs, which I found on french eBay. I would try to use my own hub which should fit together.
B. Buy a new wheel and a new freewheel or a casette (which is better?)
C. Buy a new wheel and make it fixed
or should I only buy a new hub instead of a wheel (B and C) and let a mechanic put it in my current wheel?
If noone else bids on the freewheel on eBay I could get it for 28€ (incl. shipping), which makes it probably the cheapest option. But maybe I should spend some more money on something that will definiately last longer and is more servicable and interchangable.
What would you do?
