Surprised this hasn't been posted yet, but seems Tree is finally aboard the free coaster train.

I'd just yawn at it if it were almost any other company since you know it's just gonna be a rebranded KHE, but being Tree it makes me speculate that there's more to it. Not a free coaster fan or user myself but I am curious to see the internals.

Thoughts/discuss? Also lol at the comments

Interesting.

I'd bet KHE guts, looks about the sizing and such. MAYBE a weird engagement setup like how the Clutch is reasonably similar to KHE with some refinements.

Surprised it isn't straight pull, although the spoke holes are not uniform location...THAT'S interesting.

Oh shit! How did I miss the offset spoke holes haha that is interesting.


But yeah I'd assume some kind of refinements are involved since it's Tree.

seems like it would be difficult to lace this hub lol

Actually maybe it has something to do with the number of crosses when lacing it.

Normally you'd lace a 36h wheel 3x, but you can also lace them 4x but by then the spokes on one side start to overlap the heads of the spokes on the other side, so it's not ideal.

Tree's other hubs are laced 5x, so maybe they did this offset thing to accommodate for that so they won't overlap each other, making it easier to lace.

My thoughts were all inward lacing to protect the spokes/make it easier for inward lacing.

This, I think it has to do with using a 4X pattern

Tree and coaster just sounds weird together

|

1/29/2016 6:46 PM

Hm.. no. No no. no no no. NO.


I don't like it, looks to be a KHE style internal. I could care less about how it laces up. haha make the internals better than the odyssey clutch (somehow) and you'll get my money. haha

This partly why I haven't built a solid coaster wheel yet. Seems every time I think about doing it, another company comes out with a new one. There are good ones out already, I know..but I like to have every possible option in front of me before buying. And I want something different & reliable.
