    I wouldn't be afraid to run it. It looks kosher to me.

    Smaller freewheels TEND to be weaker than the larger ones. That is, a 13/14 tooth is often weaker than a 16 tooth model. But, Odyssey has put a lot of reasearch recently into making very high quality product that stands up to actual riding. I would be willing to give it a try.

    Just keep in mind, if you already destroy 16 tooth freewheels, then you probably won't be happy with a 13 tooth model. Also, you must have down drive on your hub or a flip-flop hub. (down drive accepts freewheels under 16 tooth)

    The reason for a cassette over a freewheel is because the hub can be really strong and still be small. But, if you aren't detroying your current freewheel, the 13 tooth may last you a couple of years.

    A small tooth cog give the hi-ratio of cycling, Odyssey fit the 13 tooth on a solid body cassette carrier ouside ring. It is a completed housing on carrier, the banefit is strong heavy duty build. But also the weak point is -the rider is hard to replace a different tooth cog when if you need change the ratio. Some of other brands has made same ration in cog of 12, 13, 14 tooth by a small cassette carrier. the fasten method is quite similar as standard cassette carrrier, more flexible of cog change and ration movement. But, i dare not said if they can be the same strong as Oddyssey one piece cassette cog.
