Testimony and apologies





I want everyone to know that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of your sins, he went to hell for three days and defeated death and rose from the grave on the 3rd day.

A cassette is more strong than a freecoaster, but the real question is how you like to ride ?
You said street / park but you can ride that with both hubs...

And... You ride, so you have a bike, so you know how to ride a cassette, if you want to try something new, buy a coaster.

The Blind is simple and I'd say changes the design of a coaster making it more durable and maintenance free similar to a cassette compared to khe styles

I'd say nowadays, coasting is ideal for street and park. Go for the eclat blind if you cant make up your mind!

If you do trails and stuff, it may not be the best choice.

I have a lot more fun on coasters because i can do a lot more on them, but i have just as much fun on a cassette because i can do whacky pivot tricks like 540 taps and 720 taps and plenty of other stuff.

For beginners, get a cassette. It helps with balance and control of the bike. Once you are intermediate and up, controlling a coaster isn't hard.

Just stick with a cassette right now, seeing as you're a beginner.

I say coasters if you can afford it; they usually are more expensive. I have too many bills to pay to buy one, but I tried my friend's coaster bike and it was very fun to ride; it also felt smoother somehow.

this is basically all there is too it.. i mean freecoasters with maintenance can last and whatnot... but cassettes are kinda standard easy shit to work with.
