I dont think that there is something wrong with it, but this kind of questions should be asked before buying.

I dont think it's any actual problems just people that dont know what they're doing with it or the hub just needs to be broken in still.

Mine acts up occasionally, BUT it is the ORIGINAL Geisha hub shell with a reverse solid axle in it, and to save money I got bearings and had to shim the inner race of the driver bearings.

Somethimes my clutch take a little extra crank to catch, which is frustrating, but I don't want to spend 160-200 on a new hub for something I just tinker with occasionally.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

Got mine and i've had problems with it. Although I did know what I was doing, as i've had two other coasters before this one. I had a problem with ghost pedalling and a grinding hub whenever the cones were tightened even slightly. Taking it apart was pretty difficult the first time, it took a lot of hammering to get the axle out, but I've greased it and it's running a lot better now, still grinds a little though. I think it needed to be broken in.

Now that it's working though it's definitely my favourite of the other ones I've had (colony, alienation).

When you get yours, make sure you ride it around for a session or two then open it up and chuck some grease on there.
