You can pedal up a hill, but pedal pressure on full CAbs or whatever will blow it up

People who hitch about them on instagram use tons of pedal pressure and never grease it. That's why people blow them up

But it's not like blowing it up is inevitable. After almost 3 years of coasting I have not blow a single bearing

Currently I have a demolition rotator. Previous to that I had a khe reverse v2, federal v2 coaster, and an Ezra coaster.

I never had any trouble with pedal pressure really. I recommend just getting a Demo Rotator.

Yeah I love mine, feels really solid and the wheel is 75$ cheaper than the freemix. Fits freemix guards as well, which is pretty cool

Don't listen to Brayden Buckingham if he starts talking shot about how messed up his was before it got stolen. He had his wrench slip off and smash the threads. Then he used a cone nut with the wrong thread count so the axle stripped.

Federal V2 lasted me years with pedal pressure fufanus, etc. No bearings blown and never opened it up, some people are just shit, slamming down on their pedals and expecting it to be fine time and again. more down to technique.

Also didn't know its was brayden's ineptness that fucked his coaster up, what a surprise.

I don't use pedal pressure on coasters but it's usually my driver bearing(s) & drive side bearing that shit out on me. Only happened to my khe reverse coaster though and that was pre acb. Haven't blown a bearing since they switched the drive side bearing to an acb.

I'm on the vital legit list!

Well luckily you don't have to deal with your ducked up coaster anymore, or your bike for that matter. /burn
