The Shadow Raptor is not a freecoaster. It is a cassette hub.

I do stuff and I'm not good at it.

get a free coaster
they work for any type of riding
and there pretty strong if you dont pedal too hard

Well then...you realize the totally different riding it requires to use a freecoaster vs. a cassette?

free coasters will work for all types of riding
14mm axles are strong
and the bearings in the hub are huge

youll be fine with it

just get the alienation free coaster complete
or the federal complete
the both are laced to double wall rims
federal is a little cheaper

yes with the cluch and screw thing.

ok
well then just dont slamm the pedals down when you start going

it puts crazy amounts of sideways pressure on the inner bearings and that how you blow them out
also
the clutch could wear out the inner wall of the shell and then it might not catch as well
