I have heard cleaning a FC once a month is a good habit, I would clean/regrease it maybe every 2 or 3 weeks if you ride more. Try to to trash it up, maybe get a hub guard if you grind and just be good to it. Parts aren't made to last forever, so eventually it will be junk, but if you take care of it, that may be a LONG time from now.

I heard about a guy who rode for S&M (I think), a few years back having a Nankai Freecoaster (pretty old brand) and having only changed the bearings like once or twice since he got it like 10 years before that, and the axle maybe twice. I think his name was Sean McKinney, but don't hold me to it.

I am not a huge fan of free coasters. But I have heard that you are supposed to clean them out frequently.

I am feeling classy.

I have one, but I don't use it a lot, mainly because I like to back pedal...they are fun though!

The only "new thing" is backwards manuals are much easier. The rest can be done with timing.
