I have just been informed there is a freecoaster wheel at my LBS for sale for only $130.

I'm going to get it tommorow if it's the truth.

Turns out it's a Quando freecoaster, it was on a Fly MicroMachine that they're parting out.

I kinda want a freecoaster now. I'll probably end up saving my money for xmas and buying things with the help of some of my friends so they can order my parts and I can just pay them... because my mom won't let me buy anything.

Got it, I put a deposit on it but my parents wont let me pick it up right now.

They said if I waited till christmas it might end up under the tree. NEWSFLASH I dont want it under the tree, I want it on my bike.

I have enough to buy it, they just said to wait because my uncle still needs to get me something. I phoned him and told him to get me a tire and tube that fit it, I'll probably work my way down their tommorow and pick it up.

And it was only $100 laced to a Jalco rim.

Jalco rims suck. Your really bailing your uncle out... you should just wait and save yourself some money. You can't wait a week?

I dont care how good the rim is, I bought it for the hub.

And besides, this wont be seeing much abuse, mostly just tooling around. I still need a tire and tube for it so I told my uncle to get one for me.

How could you have not heard of Crisman?
He won the X games a few years back, haha.

And he's really good.

Turns out it's a Nankai hub .

Engagement sucks ass, but whatever, it's a freecoaster.

I think I'm going to make my own ghetto freecoaster from a coasterbrake... I just have to find how to get it onto a 14mm axle.

Mine is just a 10mm or 3/8, one of those. I dont plan on grinding with it though, so it's all good.

Although I have 14mm dropouts, I have these adapters that fit in the dropout. But they're to long and my chain is super tight, so I have to grind them down abit.

I guess it wouldn't be too good of an idea to grind with it anyway... but it would be fun to mess around with. Where did you get the adaptors from?

Local bike shop had them.

And I got mine just for screwing around, I dont think it would be good to grind with a freecoaster, but i'm probably wrong.
