So i got a new freecoaster and there is almost no slack and i dont want to take it appart because i've had bad experiences. If i get it done at my local bike shop its going to cost 50 dollars, and i cant afford that. What do you think is the best solution?

Watch videos , most companies make one and I know transition and ride have them too. It's pretty easy in my opinion but it's been a while since I last did it

New freecoasters are really easy to take apart but yea there is a good chance you find a video online about your hub and you can do it for sure

What kind of f/c is it? Is it a clutch design or is it a EZRA-based design?

The former may be slightly more difficult to fidget around with, and the latter is really a breeze to take apart.

There are tons of videos-watch em. Make sure you've got the slack discs too (if it's an EZRA design).

If you want to be safe, you can take pictures as you take it apart. Or set up a camera behind your back and film it. It's good practice and helps you to put it back.

Good luck.

Ezra are really easy to adjust. You literally just need to take the driver off and swap the slack disc. Then put the driver back in

Yep. I second this.

I have an Ezra-based freecoaster-the SaltPlus Trapez. It's a really rugged and dependable hub.

That thing is so easy to take apart and put back. Altho when I first took it apart, I was really weary and careful about it. But now, I'll easily take it off and put it back in blindfolded... Lol

Film yourself taking it apart.

Seriously. It helps A TON.
