I got my coaster today... I got a small sesh in too.
Coasters are sick. excluding you cant give that extra little crank to get your speed up if youre a little slow...

Im really loving half cabs with it. They feel great.

But....my hub has some side play in it. i checked all the bearings. Theyre fine. i also made sure the hardware was tight. the play is very minimal. I was just wondering what might be causing it or if thats normal...

Also... has anyone ever noticed the hate from other riders?

and to anyone that is currently riding a coaster... how much slack do you run? i ride full slack and hate it when i get on someone elses bike and they have like no slack. whats your preference?

Max slack. Didn't think I'd like it at first but now I love it. Can't stand the engagement of cassettes anymore.

As for the hate, I let them ride my bike, but I be sure to do a quick back crank real fast, so when they go to pedal they bash their knee. Pretty funny.

Ya. You should hold off. And coasters require constant maintenance... So if you dont take care of it, it will be shit pretty quick.. And if you cant get fakies with a cassette, you probably shouldnt get a coaster

My buddy joe ran a Reverse he bought used 3rd hand and cleaned it out one time. Still going on a different kids bike now. For the most part if they work well, a lot of people I know leave them. If they have issues, then they fix it.

I have overhauled mine maybe 4 times in 3 years, BUT I rarely ride it.

I like minimal slack just because pedal pressure in a pinch is nice.

I seek progression, not perfection.

I ride 2-5 hours a day, had my coaster for 4 months now. Never taken it apart and it's still just as good as it came. The whole "freecoasters are made out of thin glass" is not really true, at least anymore. My friend's had his KHE style coaster for 3-4 years and has never taken it apart. And he rides a lot.

i love saying freecoasters are cheating. i have a friend that rides one and i always tell him his tricks dont count because he has a coaster. but i do it as a joke. i dont mind coasters, just not for me. cant commit lmao

I'm on the vital legit list!

I've always liked free coasters but never owned one myself because i actually love having to back pedal when faking fast with a cassette but i can also ride free coasters really good to. as for the hate i don't really now whats up with that it's just another way of riding and thats it.
it would be a bit easier for my turn downs to fakie on the hips but thats it and i always tell people who are wining about free coasters to fakie without a chain and role out and they all eat shit so thats my fun

reason i got into freecoasters is because i rode chainless for 3 weeks , pushed to school and pushed home and pushed to the skate park everyohter day when it was still open , i got a chain and my bike felt retarded instantly

Lol. And I got a coaster because I love riding backwards. I do it ALL the time. And idk how coasters are cheating... Theyre harder because of no pedal pressure. Everything has to be perfectly planned... And my buddy swore he was better than me with acoaster... So I set him up to bash his knee.... I just made sure it disengaged and handed it over. He didnt fall for it. But then he went to do a partial crank before his 180 and died... He lost lol

Get the Karl Pointer Ezra coaster/cassette. It is both. So maintenance would be a little more involved than a cassette.

BJ has had his prototype for a long time with no issues, and he is rough on stuff.

I really want a Coaster. I have rode Chainless for a whole day and other times as well, and I can now Fakie well like it. It feels so good. I probably land more things backwards than I do forwards. Only problem is I don't have the money for one.

4/26/2013 9:42 AM

When i had my coaster i ran it with mid slack, mine always made a funny noise when i would pedal hard.
