I put on my freecoaster! haha It is finally fixed, and idk if any of you remember, but a while back the driver bearing exploded leaving the outer race stuck in. I talked to my friend, who has worked on cars his whole life about using a dremel and he saw my problem and took me and the freecoaster driver back to his garage and he took a pry bar and broke the damn thing out of there!! It popped out and dented the wall XD so if you have a friend with a vice, a pry bar, and a lot of rage, that is how you get those out. haha

Now, for the real thread topic: How does this freecoaster movement in BMX appeal to you? Do you think with the growing number of people riding coasters is a good thing, or a bad one? Is BMX riding getting better because of the freecoaster thing?
Do you think freecoasters are more fun than a cassette?

I think it was a revolution for flatland riders and techy park and street. One of the best things for bmx in my opinion.

I like this free coaster "movement". Adds some variety in bmx and opens up a lot of trick possibilities. I think that whole rumor that they were high maintenance kept a lot of people off them for so many years and now that a lot of the heavy street riders are running them more people are trying them out.
Do i think free coasters are more fun than cassette? Wouldn't say that, for me they both have their positives. With cassettes i like messing around with different tap tricks and stuff. On a coaster though doing fakie stuff just feels sooo smooth.

I want to get a Freecoaster, and i think they're fun. But I don't really care who is/isn't getting/using one because it's their choice.
