Freecoaster Question post #1
I know this has probably already been asked, i tried searching but couldnt find anything,

Ok so i dont know much about freecoasters and started looking into getting 1 but i was wondering if this is true. My friend told me that the bearings wear out or something and that u gotta work and replace the bearings ever month or two, I was wondering if this is true or not? Also can you please recommend what you think the best freecoaster would be?

Thanks

If you're just learning to coast you'll probably blow a driver bearing or two, but once you get the hang of it it should be fine..

the tiny bearings on the KHE/Federal/Alienation freecoasters (all basically the same thing) blow up a lot. Nankai hubs have unsealed bearings and are therefore the strongest and most reliable.

I havent had a problem with my bearings and ive had mine for 3 months. I think it all depends on how you ride like if you constantly engaging while going backwards or using pedal pressure for stuff its going to blow out. I use full slack so its really hard for any of this to happen and i havent blown a bearing yet. I have the v1 alienation
