New Cranks Today


Just waiting for that ups truck.

When they come I might even post some pics and specs of my tugboat because I know you care.

Ever wondered how a freecoaster works?

Magic.

You can see the axle is the long axle shaped part, the clutch is the top hat shaped part and the driver is to the right of the clutch.

the clutch goes on the axle with the spacer and the bearing like this, and then the driver is screwed into the clutch.

When you peddle forward the clutch is pulled toward the driver and the inside of the hub shell which is tapered like this.

When the clutch hits the inside of the hub shell it engages and the hub shell turns with it, thus moving the wheel forward. When you stop pedaling, the clutch unscrews slightly, thus disengaging the hub shell and then you are freecoasting.
