Upgrading Regina Oro Freewheel

Hi all,

My vintage lightweight bicycle has Regina Oro 5 ring freewheel which is malfunctioning due to bad service.
I have to replace it.
Which brand model would be considered an upgrade?

more info, questions:
- It's a 1977 Swiss Mondia bike, so a period correct and with regional affinity brand would be better
- I can replace exact same freewheel but some say its not a freewheel to seek after to replace though I was happy with it providing smooth ride.
- Freewheel is out of order because they did not use correct key to dismantle and some ballbearing is possibly lost. Can it be fixed or will I throw it away?

thank you

Send the Oro to PastorBob. He can make it good as new for you. Well worth saving.

EDIT: IMO. (not to everyone's taste, I know

? Did whoever "serviced" it destroy the notches on the body by using the wrong tool removing it?

RB & BG, thanks for the endorsement!

magnety,

Lately I've serviced about dozen Regina Oro, Corsa, etc., 5 speed freewheels. I've even transplanted inner bodies in order to replace the botched up two notch removal slots which prevent easy removal, so I'm doubtful your Oro is beyond repair and ready for the trash. A missing bearing or two or three, or even 6 should not cause a Regina malfunction. A misplaced pawl on the other hand, will lock the Regina in place, preventing it from spinning, and this could very well be your issue.

The pawls on the 5 speed Regina freewheels barely stay in place. There's a small hole which holds the pivot point on one side, and the pawl fits loosely into this.




While this particular model uses a brass leaf spring to "push" the pawl open and engage the teeth, older models used a brass wire which fits into a thin slot in the back of the pawl. In either case, holding the pawls closed, with the bearings greased and in place, for the final assembly is a very delicate procedure. One slip and pawl is out of place. At this time you could very easily dislodge the pawl, but successfully mate the inner and outer bodies and finish assembly. However, the pawl would lock the two halves together and the freewheel would not work.



I should also mention I've had great (but at times varied) success in polishing Oro cogs. Below is a stack of cogs after polishing before they were mounted.



This is what they looked like before:

Save that old Regina. Some here scoff at using period freewheels, especially since new ones that perform a bit better are cheap and plentiful. But I kind of feel the way about Reginas and Everests, etc., as I do about other parts from the era. Worth saving if they're not worn out and all trashed.

Hi rootboy, yes I really got some "service!" even paid for it : ) . was not a planned service, long sad story.
First one destroyed notches with some tool. second was able to remove it ring by ring then reassambling. but now it sometimes acts like "fixie" and you hardly ever hear freewheel sound when you do not pedal.

Thank you Pastorbob for your detailed help.
I am afraid I can not figure out myself that technical issues so I would send it to you anyway.
Have to remove it first though, with someone who got the suitable tool!

Where are you located?

Also sounds as if it could be over greased. In my experience an old Regina 5 speed always "clicks" and can be heard. But I'm still guessing they let one of the pawls slip loose as they put it back together.

Amen ( sorry Pastor ),

Any vintage Suntour or Shimano FW is far better in any performance category than a Regina, especially when one needs to pull & replace.

"Back when" we gleefully dumped Regina chains & FWs for Winners & 600s parried w/ Sedisport chains which shifted better, lasted longer and cost less.

"Period correct", save it for static display.

You are missing the point. The OP is not interested in a better shifting freewheel even though he uses the word "upgrade." Certainly a Shimano or any of the modern freewheels with ramps and carved teeth would shift better. Ultimately he is wanting to repair his Regina freewheel so it will work correctly, which someone botched up for him.

How about offering up your Regina freewheels for sale at a reasonable price? Reginas sitting in a drawer collecting dust and while their grease hardens are not doing you any good. Why keep something you've deemed as inferior which other interested enthusiasts would like to possess?

Dumped is what I did decades ago w/ no provision for future collectors/enthusiasts of lousy technology.

I am blissfully ignorant. Regina freewheels always worked great for me.

A bike with full shimano drive train undoubtedly shifts and runs better than my old bikes.
But it doesn't interest me.

Are you kidding? Just about anything would be considered an upgrade. Regino Oro freewheels were considered desirable on Italian racing bicycles because they were ... Italian. About the only thing that would be a downgrade would be an Atom freewheel (as for example, one of my Atoms literally fell off the back hub and began freewheeling in both directions).

Defiant Freewheels, 7, 6, and 5 speeds

I recommend that you remove and save the Regina Oro 5-speed for display and get a dura ace / shimano 600 clone, an IRD Defiant freewheel, with the twist-tooth profile. They aren't cheap, but my (actual dura-ace) freewheel is the best freewheel I have ever shifted, and I hate shimano parts!

Thanks for your opinion. I'm fine, thanks. Owning vintage bikes, for me, is more than about performance only.
Used Regina freewheels 40 years ago. Still do. And Atoms, too. And Caimi, too.
Put a Shimano freewheel on an early 60's Frejus?
No, thank you.

I do have one Sun Tour freewheel, however.

Certainly very low on the list for me. If on the list at all.
At my age, my bikes can out-perform me.

Hi again Bob, I am in Istanbul so shipping costs with service fee may sum up more than buying one other from ebay possibly.
My plan is; I will make it removed with right tool here in an old shop (owner does not provide fixing wheels).
then tell your explanations to a mechanic friend who could figure out how to fix it.
if he can not succed then I may buy another one and send broken frewheels to you.
even friends got some atoms lying around because thought to be "can not fixed".

Actually I was very happy with it too.
Crank is Sugino Maxy, hub is Campagnolo Record, derailleur is Suntour V Luxe, Do not know the chain for now but they all worked very well together.
My concern was It's Swiss bike full of different brand configuration. I can not figure out which were originally put at factory. There is not enough data on web.
So maybe as I may have to change the freewheel I can consider other brand model from same era. If it was not broken I did not care for an upgrade.

Hi Bandera, any particular Suntour FW model from that days? My derailleur is Suntour maybe they can make a good pair.

The original Suntour has gone out of business. Vintage NOS is out there but can command some high prices for the basic "Perfect" and gold "Pro Compe" 5spd models as well as the "Winner" 6spd. All good kit "back when".

Here's an excellent overview by Sheldon Brown: http://sheldonbrown.com/suntour.html

My personal preference changed to Shimano's offerings in 600 & DA models FW, same NOS price issue.

systemBuilder's recommendation of the modern Defiant FW is a good one, paired w/ a SRAM chain good to go for reasonable $.
Drivetrain components are wearable & replaceable, get the gear range you require & proceed.

Perhaps the only caution, might be, ….try to make sure the hub is not French threaded. Doubtful on a Mondia of that vintage, but possible.

Magnety,

Beautiful city you live in! I visited Turkey for two weeks in 2005 for the total eclipse of the sun on the Mediterranean coast. We then toured the country and finished in Istanbul. It was a wonderful trip and I hope to return some day.

Yes, the cost might be prohibitive. Shipping back to Turkey will probably cost $25+ USD (depending on insurance). My normal charge without shipping is $19. When I send these back to international locations I declare them as "gifts" (since there is no box to check for "repair services"). I believe that avoids any customs fees since they are under $400 in value and this is not the purchase of a product.

Another option is for a trade. If you plan to send me your broken ones, I could send you a Regina that I have cleaned and serviced and is ready to install. I just need to know the tooth counts on your current Regina cogs and I'll do my best to match it or build it with gearing you'd prefer. So keep this in mind. You can contact me via email on my website.

That is a mix of parts from different companies. Is the front derailleur Suntour as well?

While I've only had one IRD freewheel pass through my hands, as best I could tell, it was not serviceable. No matter how hard I tried I could not get the top cog to break loose, and IIRC, the lockring and the cog had to come off in order to remove the retaining ring/top bearing race. While the IRD was basically new, it was binding and not running smoothly.

I'm not saying all IRD freewheels run rough, just that this one would not come apart in order for me to take a look and possibly solve its problems.

Considering magnety lives in Istanbul, his least expensive route would probably be to find a Shimano or Sunrace five speed at a LBS or in country mail order. Isn't Turkey now a member of the EU? Can't you order from an EU country without customs taxes?

Chasing down a 5 speed Dura Ace or 600 freewheel can also be pricey! 6 speeds are significantly more abundant. The other challenge could be gearing. Most of the DAs and 600s I've run across in 5 or 6 speed, were mostly performance geared, so something like 13 or 14 to 19 or 23.

Yes front is Suntour, no problem on that. Sugino crank is also default item I guess from other Mondias. At some time companies used what they have in stock or got in bulk buy cheap I guess. But then again some little parts are Campagnolo which makes me wonder if someone made my bike donor. [/QUOTE]

Best solution if I will have to buy will be from ebay UK or DE. Also I am sure will be in contact with you about Reginas, Atoms. [/QUOTE]

thank you all
