You can't without a CNC.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

If you're gonna strip your cassette, just take off your chain and sprocket and save some weight. Boom, instant freecoasting.

FTW!

I'd say Video or it didnt happen. Anyone can bullshit pics with an old junker hub.

If you do it, you should just quit and never touch a bike again.

The internals to a freecoaster would cost almost as much as one. i suggest just saving your money, and buying a second wheel, that way you can switch it out as needed.
