I'm going to my local bike shop tomorrow to order a free coaster in, what is the best coaster?

And tips for new free coaster riders

I ride four pegs so it need to be strong, and can rock guards on both sides.

I was just about to make this thread. Either the Federal, or wait for the Primo. Those are the 2 i'm keen on.

Also I need LHD

Federal has an extra thrust bearing. Supposed to help the longevity of the hib

no offense, bt youd be stupid to buy a freecoaster now, with so many on the edge of being released.... especially with interbike round the corner. infact, i wouldnt buy anything new this close to interbike

depends on which Federal hub it is. The V2 can be adjusted without removing it from the bike.

I think you should wait to buy one, I know a few companies are coming out with new ones like primo and cult and like said above interbike is coming so you never know what else is going to be released

im not really sure which one is the best but if you wanted get one now id go with the federal

Pretty solid, BJ Tomczik has a prototype of it with no issues for like 2 years.

The Cult coaster seems okay. It uses the same internals as the already reliable KHE freecoaster much like many other companies but they've changed the driver side bearings to a more reliable bearings.

[LINK TO IMAGE]
We really took our time designing the Cult Match FC hub. The “stock” FC internals used by most companies work perfectly, but it is the hub drive-side and driver bearings that let most companies’ finished items down. We designed a custom tapered roller bearing intended to work in unison with the FC movement and added a needle roller bearing to the driver to build a bullet proof unit. We also added a needle-thrust bearing behind the clutch to reduce drag during coasting. The Match FC Hub is sold with the preferred “slack” requested by AK, Timmy Theus, Joe Vee, and every other Member that worked on this product with us. #cultcrew @nealcult

I already bought the Federal V3, I am also one of those people who are skeptical about buying a brand new part with no reviews, also have the coasters that are interbike won't be out for a while, like all previous interbike. Besides I will rock this one for a while then buy a new one when it breaks.
