Has anyone ridden one? Or know how good is it? I'm putting my bike together and need a rear hub. I want a freecoaster, but I also like riding a cassette so this seems like a good option, not expensive either.

Looks like the same design as the ezra. I had the salt plus version. It done it's job I guess, but I only rode it twice and discovered freecoasters feel like arse

Was the amount of slack enough?

I guess so, I put it on minimum slack because it felt weird and it occasionally engaged when I wasn't expecting. I'm sure it'll be fine on medium or most once you're used to it

Yeah that actually looks like a nice hub... the Freecoaster/Cassette feature is pretty cool. But I personally like cassettes. But if that's what you'd like than go for it.

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...
