Holy shit, you're annoying.

I immediately regret standing up for you. It seems to have given you more self confidence. Do us all a favour and sit back a bit, see the tone of the thread, and then join in.
yo, this is the first forum I've ever been in in my life. I understand now. As I said before, I miss read banter as insults. Will everyone drop it already! Dead Horse Dead Horse Dead Horse Dead Horse I'm here for the street, allow it!

People on forums hate it when you post more than once consecutively. You're a huge offender for this. It's annoying as f*ck. You can edit replies into your post.

Still annoying to be honest. But it's gunna take a long time for us to warm up to you because you came in here like a cock wielding super sayin. So just relax a bit and you'll be liked...eventually.

Tighten your cone nuts if it's still there like you have blown a hub bearing which likely means the driver bearing may be about to die as well

I actually set mine up with a c*nt hair of wobble because if I don't my pegs make the driver bearing bind up a bit

yea its been there since i got it the driver bearing is f*cked kinda still rides smooth the wobble just bugs me when i rode cassetes i hated any noise on my bike that sounded a loose part. i just can't afford the bearing to replace it right now im looking into a new hub as soon as i can. i'm thinking about another khe reverse if it can last this long on a blown bearing then a new on should last forever.

Check out the Merritt coaster it has bushings instead of bearings... My homie has been on one for a while now with no issues at all

The best freecoaster actually is the NYB japan B coaster. It uses the unsealed bombproof system that nankai coasters use but has a 14mm male axle. It weighs the same as a profile 14mm cassette and is reliable as long as you grease the bearings ever 4 months or so. I used to run a nankai and the only thing that was a bummer was the 3/8ths axle. Since the nankai I have owned 3 khe coasters and had to replace the driver bearings over 40 times. Now that there is a 14mm nankai I am getting rid of my reverse which has had the driver bearing blow up 3 times already since the start of april.
dude you could have just run a nankai bamboo for years. they can be hard to find but ive seen a couple on ebay over the years.

got to ride my buddies it was really nice... feels very different in ways to the KHE design but the cassette sound is nice to be able to alert you if you are engaged or not.... But is it worth the $600 CAD it will cost you after tax not likely
