    cassette or freewheel

    so I was hanging around in my apartment building's garage, working on my bmx's brakes. I had take the wheel off. I went to the other side of a large support pillar to put my broken top cable in the garbage, but when I can back, my wheel was gone. w... t... f? so now I gotta buy a new one. I'm thinking of going for a cassette instead of a freewheel cuz they sound cooler. i like the loud clicking. but I want to know about them before I buy, so I don't screw myself over are they more expensive, do they perform better, are they more durable, etc.

    free wheel hubs are much cheaper. look to spend about 200 dollars on a cassette rear wheel. even more if you want something custom with a better hub.

    You can obtain that really loud clicking by taking out all the greese on the pawls on the driver for the cassette, but it just decreases the life
