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.

Removing Freewheel with Damaged Splines

I picked up a frame that had a nice set of Bullseye hubbed wheels with it. I was looking at removing the freewheel from it and it seems that the previous owner must have tried to remove as well and has messed up the splines inside the freewheel pretty well, each of them has basically become an angl ...

Freewheel tool for Shimano 2 prong...

So, my wheelset is currently equipped with a 20T Shimano freewheel that I'm disposing of in favor of an Excess 18t unit. Looks like the only freewheel tool that officially works is the Shimano TL-FW40, which is out of stock on Amazon. [ATTACH=CONFIG]915310[/ATTACH] There's an Avenir 2-prong BMX ... Read More »
