    1. For me, f/c were easier to fakie with than freewheel/cassette.

    2. The two I have (KHE Reverse V1 & V2) work fine and roll super smooth.

    would you recommend one of the alienation ones, or should i just stick with something from KHE or Federal?

    i mean theyre basically all the same because almost all of em are made from KHE internals, so the only thing that really even belongs to that company is the shell.

    i was actually just looking at the reverse and the reverse ACB. basically the same thing, except that the one has an angular contact bearing to help with all of the side load. other than that, the only difference is like one bushing and $45. im not really sure.

    and does anyone know how much it costs to have a hub laced to a rim?

    Exactly. I went with KHE because of their design. Federal would have been my next choice then Alienation based on the shell look. Lacing costs may range from $10-$30 depending on your area.

    where the heck do you live normal areas charge 50$ and up to lace

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    Try this it might be cheaper than getting a hub and then having it laced to a rim and easier.

    The only feecoaster i would trust is the revers acb right now until the g-sport one hits witch wont be for a while. My buddy has blown up his regular reverse 3 times in less then 8 months and now has the acb and its been going strong for a while now. He is a big guy too.

    i was thinking about doing that, but ive been talking to a guy whos ridden a freecoaster for years, and he said that i should just go ahead and buy a normal hub, and then lace it up myself. he even sent me a link for this DIY site that walks you through lacing a hub step by step.

    Yea that would be cheap too. It not that hard you just have to concentrate. It takes a long time too.

    yea the guy i talked to said that it shouldnt take more than an hour or two. he rebuilds his hub once a month, and his wheel 2-3 times a year.

    The people that lived at my house before had two RVs. They used it to park them in. It's not inclosed but will be because my uncle is using it as a garage. But it's on my property so I told him he has to let me use half of it.

    Yeah so have I.
    But the new ones look pretty nice.
    And I've seen just as many broken reverses.
    Cassettes ftw.

    It's kind of surprising that Odyssey or Profile hasn't made any freecoasters yet.

    They are the same insides. Just the shell is different. But I would go with the alienation one. It has slack adjustment with and allen key.

    odyssey has had a freecoaster, but stopped production and they are going to come out with one (g-sport) that is going to blow every other freecoaster out of the water.
