So I messed up my rear hub (freecoaster, and it's a long story) and my rim isn't the best so I decided to just get a whole new rear wheel. Should I get a Federal rear wheel off of danscomp, which is $260? It's such a high price, and I will buy it if it's worth it but what about Alienation rear wheels? They are on danscomp as well but I have not heard of them. Are they any good? They are much cheaper and I am new to bmx, but would a more expensive wheel pay off eventually?

If you're talking about the freecoaster wheels, the alienation is a khe clone, as is the federal. So, they're pretty much the same but the federal has been through a few different versions and will probably hold up a bit better. I don't know much about federal rims, but the alienation comes with a sun big city, which is a pretty burly rim (probably heavy by today's standards? But pretty damn strong).

In all honesty, yeah the federal is probably the better wheel, and is worth spending the extra money on. But there's plenty of other freecoaster wheels out there. Non of them are cheap though

You should check out Albes bmx for a custom wheel. You could get, say an odyssey clutch laced to a nice rim for cheaper than that. I found (that for me at least) whenever I shop there I can use coupon code "tape" and get a lot off.

Odyssey hazard lite clutch wheel. The hazard lite or 7ka is my favorite rim. I just like the look better than anything else. It's a classic. Still it's been around for a very long time. It's a proven rim. I'm sure the clutch is just as good. your planning on spending $260 anyway, you'd be crazy not to go with odyssey. I'd get the antigram wheel myself, I'm not into the coaster thing.

Yeah but I'd rather not spend 260. Would the kink east coaster dtc freecoaster wheel be good? If it really wouldn't be all that great, then I guess I would have to spend 260 but do you think the kink would be good?

There is a brand new wheel on eBay for $199.95, and its a Gsport Ribcage laced to a Sunday Cyclone Freecoaster... that's an awesome deal for a pretty much bomb proof wheel! Photo

Just picked this up for $160 when Ebay was running a 20% deal. It's noticeably heavier, but I was running a profile cassette laced to a hazard lite. I don't mind the weight because this thing is bomb proof.
