cassette or freewheel?
what do u think is better for any style of riding, a cassette hub or a regular freewheel? Does one break easier or what?
If you're bashing it all the time, a freehweel is better, mainly because it's cheaper to replace. On the other hand, a cassette is smoother, louder (usually), and less likely to skip; the engagement on a cassette is also slightly quicker than on a freewheel.
Neither is 'better'. They are rider specific depending on how hard you are on them, and how important weight and clearance is to you. The cassette hub can be built slightly lighter than the freewheel/hub combination and allows for smaller gearing which saves weight and gives additional clearnance under the bike. A smaller sprocket is also stiffer which can be a good thing.
But, it's also much more expensive and can break, sometimes more easily, than a freewheel.
But, this is all rider dependent.
I ride a freecoaster, so I'll stay out of the rest of this discussion.
okey cool, thanks for ya help
