Here's a short little edit shot over the winter at Joyride 150 in Markham, Ontario, Canada. Huge thanks to the people over at Joyride for giving us all a place to ride in the winter.
Big thanks to Mike Dimartino for filming the majority of the clips as well as Liam Regan for filming a couple clips and putting the video together for me.

Things might be a bit harder to do but you aren't really limited aside from clearance on some ledges and rails. My buddy rides one and kills it, check the link. I rode it the other night and managed to get a crank arm grind on it so if a regular bmx ... more »

The little ball tensioners under the clutch are not providing enough friction to allow the clutch to be grabbed by the driver. If you turn them counter clockwise a little on each it should fix your problem, it may need to be fine tuned after re assembling ... more »
When I had issues with my Blind Hub Shane Weston and Dave Paterson from éclat got back to me within a day and solved my issue within a couple weeks, considering they sent me a replacement hub and got me to send them back the old one without having to ... more »
I sell it to you for cheap and this is what you try to do with it?
Personally mine is working amazing after they sent me new springs.
Seems solid enough! I'd recommend to anyone buying this hub to get at least the non drive side hub guard or you will really have to stretch your frame to fit universal style guards.
That is probably a smart thing to do and wait and see how it goes with these new springs and I probably should have waited to see how everything went before I bought it but now that I have the new springs I have no regrets. There was no way for eclat ... more »
Shane Weston just has a lot of experience with it and knows how to be able to use pedal pressure with it. I've been riding it and it feels way better slack wise than the other coasters I've ridden.
The blind actually has at least 1/4 crank of slack btw. It doesn't have minimal slack because it has a specific driver for it to be a freecoaster which was designed to have similar to the amount of slack as most coasters on the market and a separate ... more »
Define a real freecoaster? I've been on the khe style for the last 3 years. None of us were bashing the other coasters so don't see why we needed your input on anything.
Best part is that even if the hub engages you just need to give it the slightest back crank and its coasting again
Yeah man! I've ridden all three of federals coasters and never had a problem with any of them other than a driver bearing in the first version but the blind hub definitely feels a lot more solid.
