Strengths:    Cheap

Weaknesses:    Short life expectancy, difficult to remove

Bottom Line:   
I bought one of these to check to see how a 32:20 ratio worked for me before I shelled out on a more expensive freewheel. To be fair it achieved that task but I was hoping for it to last longer than 80 miles.The first time that I rode it in the wet the grease was squeezed out through the 'seal' and it started grinding. I decided to remove it to see if I could service it. Big mistake! Mine lacked the 'inner' notches shown in the picture above so I removed the dust cover to see if I could remove it that way only to be showered in bearings! The bearings were obviously dulled and past their life so I decided to call it a day and remove the freewheel. Sadly there are no notches for a tool to bite into, hammer and chisel failed so I had to lock it into a vice and turn the wheel to remove it from my hub.

So, good buy if you only ride in the dry and never intend removing it. For the other 99.9% of people avoid and save your pennies for something better.
