check out these FREEWHEELS

I got these two freewheel yesterday in a trade I made for a wheelset. CLICK ON THUMBNAILS FOR LARGER PICS!!!

First is a 7 speed sachs LY-93 which is like new.






Next is a Everest NOVA Extraleggera that is also in like new condition, and is light as a feather. Both spin like nothing I've ever felt. The Sachs being a 7 speed will go up for trade in a bit for a 6 speed freewheel.

Mmmm, those are some nice looking freewheels.

We've got the 13-28 version of that Sachs on my partner's mixte, and it's such a wonderfully made piece. Alu freewheels are always happy to see around here, too. I hope you've got an ancient weight weenie to put it on.

Grats!

Those Everest alloy freewheels are nice - I have one on a tubular wheelset and its great. Really loud and positive sounding. Watch out for the low cog, however; it can develop cracks along the threading and strip out while riding (this has happened to me using two separate units).
