Get fakies on a cassette dialed before you even think about a freecoaster. And using a freecoaster can sometimes be harder than with a cassette/flip flop hub.

ya it is harder to balance in fakie with a free. and if you just broke your hub, let me notify you that freecoasters need often maintenance.

I got to use one the other day. Its really different because ive been back peddling for such a long time. It made fakies harder for me, but I suppose with practice, you could use it to your advantage.

I think rolling out is harder too. Like with my friends, you couldn't use crank pressure as the bike would just throw you backwars :lol: so the only way was to slide or half-cab.

Oh, and if your new to the sport or just aren't that good yet people will think your a trend whore.

freecoaters are good when u start out with them, but if ur used to a cassette then it might throw you off not having to pedal backwards.
