Either the first gen federal or the khe ACB reverse, maybe even a first gen alienation rush.

my vote goes for a Nankai coaster. techno if you are pegless, Bamboo if you grind. they have unsealed bearings, which is actually the best part. all the other hubs with sealed bearing have been known to explode, but you can't explode a Nankai hub because there are no sealed bearings to shatter.

the KHE Reverse ACB (with and angluar contact bearing) sounds promising as well.

if you can get an old Odyssey Reloader or Poverty coaster, those are supposed to be very reliable as well.

first of all, you know they are the same thing right? second, through-the-axle slack adjustment is the most useless feature on a hub ever. why would you actually use that?

Yes they will still be making a freecoaster go check out their site or attempt again to watch that video I posted where George demos the prototype. I would think it would be coming out soon but who knows.

which is no longer made and nearly impossible to find. it's basically the same thing as the old Odyssey Reloader.

and i don't know if Ian is still running a Poverty hub. maybe, maybe not.

yeah i was able to get the video to work. that hub looks very nice and i think thats what im going to wait for. seems to have the most logical design and probably gonna be the lightest too i would imagine. that hub is just plain bad ass! hahaha. is there any info anywhere else on it?

Haven't tried the ones with adjustable slack with the allen wrench but i do have the reverse acb. although it hasn't broken yet i would still prefer the geisha over any of khe's other freecoasters. if you are going to get a freecoaster get a geisha, don't be intrigued by the adjustable slack with the allen wrench. the geisha is the best freecoaster I have ever riden. geisha is not the most expensive freecoaster but yet it isn't the cheapest.

ian runs a poverty shell with khe internals (also the 3pc EAS axle) as far as i know
if you are going to get a coaster and don't grind i strongly recomend a geisha with 3pc axle as the EAS puts less stress on the bearings and therefor makes the drivers bearings last longer
i ran one and now am going to purchase another and sell my profile as they are so much fun and i had no problems at all
