    Most freecoasters use a clutch system for engagement. And yes, you don't have to pedal while riding fakie.

    A cassette uses pawls and springs.

    don't buy a freecoaster unless you learn how to maintain it.

    You have to take apart the driver every few weeks or so to clean it and re-grease/lube it.
