 the only bad thing is---the hub turns into a shimano lx-xt-xtr after you're done... you can do it and ride it for a bit... but it won't last Wink

 I did this once! Only I didn't put in those washers . . . It's got a lot of slack.

 a way easier way of doin it is just takin off the bolt on the one side and then take off the brake arm n put the bolt back on

 Simply removing the brake arm doesn't allow free wheel ...
Even with washers, I found a ½ turn slack after back peddling.
Using a lock washer / spring washer I was able to get rid of it.
It takes some trial & error to get enough pinch to hold the bearing up tight and still have some roll in the axle, but I now have a cruiser that free wheels with no visible modifications.
