Thats all you gotta do? Cuz sometimes it never does that and are there any freecoasters that you dont have to do that and would it disengage when im still going forward?

Basically your pedals are moving causing it to engage. You might not think so, but they are. It tricks the hub into thinking you are pedaling forward, moving the clutch into position to pedal and go forward, causing it to catch. Try adjusting your slack to have more slack.


Side note, I think my coaster has a bad set of driver bearings, grinding sound when I pedal forward, no noise when coasting or when going fakie. Oh well.

Bummer.
