What does FA mean and what's the difference? Is one stronger or something? Looking to buy a freecoaster and would like some more info.

^^ that. Female is technically stronger but i mean male has been the standard for years and nobody really had problems with it.. FA is just alot cleaner.. so again just whichever you prefer.. Id go with male because its easier to get the bolts if one stripped.

Those Male bolts that bolt in the inside of the male axle slot are so weak usually. I snapped one tightening it once. It is good if you have dropouts that are thicker than 5mm tho. You cant run em with 4mm, but can with 5mm, but 6 and up is ideal. And if they break off, you cant get that shut out because the part is stuck inside of the axle.

Sure you can.

Use an Easy Out.

And females are a stronger axle because it is shorter. Shorter axle = less leverage from pegs etc which = less stress.

Get better bolts.
