“BMX” with a freecoaster

This “bike” man.

So, I went to Walmart with some family that was visiting, and I stumbled across the bicycle section. I saw this lone bike being the only one with 4 “pegs”. I decided, as any reasonable human would, to dick around on the bike. So, I decided to do some tricks on it, and I noticed that it had a rather large distance to go for the wheel to engage. I eventually fakied and backpedaled, and accidentally stopped pedaling. I expected to be thrown off my bike, but I kept going! It didn’t make any noise going forward like a cassette. Basically, this bike costs less than most freecoaster wheels, has 1 piece shit cranks, yet has a freecoaster? Hilarious stuff man, did not expect that.

I know right lol

But seriously, some Walmart bikes do have a "freecoaster" I guess you can say, but they're total shit as you'd probably expect lol

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

It was likely just a normal coaster brake hub. Just as there is a gap involved in engaging the clutch when pedalling forward, there is also a gap when back pedalling before the brake shoes engage the hub shell. If there wasn't such a gap, you wouldn't be able to coast going forwards

I thought it was too, but I fakied backwards for far too long for it to be a busted coaster hub, not to mention there was no arm or arm mount, and also I could pedal backwards a million times without it braking.

I thought it was at first when it wasn’t making noise, but it couldn’t be because if it was a cassette it wouldn’t pedal forwards if it didn’t engage going backwards

Some cheap coasters don't have a reaction arm (which is silly), but being able to backpedal pretty much seals the deal on it being a freecoaster

Just hilarious that there's a cheap ass bike, that doesn't even have 3 piece cranks, has a freecoaster installed.
I think the best part is the bike still had the "this bike should not be used for stunting or jumping" sticker on it

Who knows? I wouldn't be surprised if the clutch system was made entirely out of some hard plastic, I can really see that actually.

Another plot twist, the internals have disappeared in the hub-less hub with no plot.
