discontinued? Sunrace freewheel...

does anybody know anything about a Sunrace 11-36t 10 speed freewheel? I stumbled across a reference to it and started googling, it looks to me like it might be a discontinued product,many websites list it(Amazon,Modern Bike in Iowa, Niagra Cycle,Jenson,even WalMart) but nobody has it in stock. at first I thought it was a mislabled cassette but I doubt that allthose websites would make the same error.my tricycle project requires a freewheel unless there is a way to switch to cassette that I don't know about(if there is please tell me) any info is appreciated

The bike world is known for vapor ware. A product is prototyped, maybe an initial production run is made, the marketing dept starts it's work getting the info out and then for various reasons the product vanishes.


Do know that the freewheel's tightening torque will be very high with such a low gear. When Sun Tour made their AG gear set (with a 38T low cog) we had a couple of tandem teams use them. One team, a few years later, almost didn't get that freewheel off their nice Phil hub... Andy.

DNP Epoch should have them too.

Not that cheap.

Although, I think the 11/32 and 11/34 are a bit more common.
