Fiend Freecoaster

With all the excitement here on the site recently this one nearly slipped through the cracks but Fiend‘s freecoaster is out now.  Here’s what Fiend’s website said about it;

“Featuring a CNC machined alloy shell that’s been trimmed down to reduce weight and to look more like a cassette hub than a freecoaster our hub takes advantage of KHE’s proven (Proven to… coast backwards?) freecoaster internals and a hollow chromoly 14mm axle with alloy hardware. We’ve also included 3 slack washers for the rider to adjust their preferred amount of slack. Weight 21.3 OZ”

Animal Bikes 2015 Sneak Peek

A few months ago, I got the privilege to go visit the Animal Bikes warehouse on a dealer’s night and see what the guys were cooking up for the upcoming year. Between a huge jam that was going out on in the parking lot, sitting down to talk about upcoming parts and apparel, and all the free pizza and beer you could possibly drink, the hours flew by.

Luckily, I was able to get some pictures of parts that’ll dropping soon, along with some more info on what went into making them a reality. With that being said, let’s get started on this. Click through for more…

Sunday Thundercoaster Wheel

Freecoaster’s are pretty much the go to choice for every street rider these days, and now the chaps at  Sunday have made it even more friendly on your wallet to own one.

Their new affordable Thundercoaster wheel starts out with a basic freecoaster hub that uses KHE-style clutch internals laced to the Thunder double wall rim. This wheel is available for $219.99 and can be picked up at your local Sunday dealer today!

Odyssey Clutch Freecoaster

Here’s another look at Odyssey‘s new Sean Sexton signature Clutch Freecoaster they announced the other day, as seen on G-Sport George’s Instagram page. Word on the street is that this uses a traditional clutch style system, but with some major differences. I’m really hoping those are 14mm female bolts, but I doubt it…

This prototype is also a LHD version, so expect to see both RHD and LHD options form the initial release, as well as hub guards. Apparently it’s pretty close to production so maybe this thing will be out by the end of the year?

Everyone got pretty excited when we posted a sneak peek of Odyssey‘s prototype Freecoaster hub earlier this year. Well thanks to this post by Odyssey’s Austin based design office, the hub will be Sean Sexton’s signature hub and will be called the Clutch Freecoaster. Guessing by the name, this thing will use a clutch based system like the KHE style hubs, but Odyssey claim this isn’t using the same internals and uses a new, unique system. Look out for more on this one at Interbike in September!

The next coaster related news of the day comes from Stranger who posted this snap of their soon-to-be-released switchable freecoaster/cassette hub.  From the name we can tell this is going to adopt the newer and lighter retention ring system (used by Kink, Vocal, etc) rather than KHE licenced internals.  More info and mysterious instagram snaps as they come.
