So yeah.. Im looking for a freecoaster and came across these two. Some of my friends have the Federal v3 and they think its good, but the Ezra one seems interesting. I cant decide so im gonna ask you guys of you opinion?

I wouldn't buy Ezra anything personally, I've broken a frame, bars,stem, and front hub from them. I'd go with the federal, but the Ezra does seem pretty cool

I'd go for the Federal unless you were really unsure about wanting a coaster. The Ezra remains unproven and I've heard about the Delrin disks and even the pawls breaking and snapping.

If you have the money to spend incase it breaks, I'd go for it.. But if you have a cassette wheel laying around, just swap it out when you wanna switch and get the cult
