That ratchet wouldn't happen to be a 10tooth?

If anyone wants to know the frame geo, let me know.  Also, here's a riding clip to prove that I actually ride it.  I need to film more on it, but I'm just bad at asking my friends to film.

Pretty sure a limited supply of pixie dust around the world kept this from coming to fruition...

The Clutch 2 ended up being pretty awesome though.  I've had one for a while with no problems other than breaking the first plastic guard that came with it.  I did smash the shit out of it though and the replacements are cheap, so no complaints there.

I don't know what I'm more stoked about, the return of RNC, or seeing Bunky is still here.

Awwww, that just gave me the warm and fuzzies in my pants.

I still check here from time to time and kill the Russian spam.

Moe Fuggah RNC is back?  The world must be ending.

The Bike Shop / Re: another new freecoaster - planetary gear engagement
« on: August 24, 2019, 05:37:17 PM »
I've been riding one for a couple weeks.  It's basically the same internals as the Ezra hub but the clutch disc has a planetary gear in it and it engages on the hubshell instead of the axle so that when the hub moves forward the inside section of the clutch disc moves backwards pushing the pawls up.  When it moves backwards it moves the inside section forward enough to allow you to pedal forward with no resistance as long as you don't pedal forward faster than the hub is moving backwards.

It hasn't blown up on me yet, but I'm not the hardest on coasters.

and even those broke all the time and required a decent amount of work to extract the outside races.
Headset star nut with the prongs bent a bit. You can also order a slightly smaller one for office furniture legs, since I used the headset one for 6902s. Hammer it in, flip the driver over, hammer the bearing race out, then flip that over in a vice and hammer the star nut out to reuse.

That is brilliant.  For a long time I had a bar end that I cut a grove into and could tighten it into the race and hammer it out with a punch from the other side, but I lost it around the time I moved to Raleigh.  About the time I moved here, I got an Ezra, though, and a Clutch v1 not too much later, and a Profile after that, so most of the broken bearings I deal with now are from other people's hubs I'm just helping out.

Yeh, the v1 had a 3/8ths drive side bolt and a 14mm non-drive bolt, which was still better than a lot of other freecoasters out there that were either using two 3/8ths bolts, or just a normal 14mm axle. 

The v2's have both 14mm female bolts.

I actually really liked my Ezra hub a lot.  It popped and skipped a lot at first but then started doing it less, but still did it.  It's a light hub and I never had to replace the 6802 bearings in it.  I was cutting the 6802's out of my Geisha/poverty combo hub I was riding before that almost monthly because the inside bearing race was too tiny and would break.  I had a Greyhound too, that they changed to the 14mm inside diameter bearing races on (vs 15mm previously) and even those broke all the time and required a decent amount of work to extract the outside races.

The Ezra was the first freecoaster I ever had that I felt like I didn't need to maintain, which was a big change.  Up until that point, all of the freecoasters on the market required a decent amount of maintenance.

The only issue I have seen is the axle. Kind of a wack design.

What's wack about the axle design?  It's the strongest freecoaster axle out there.

I've got a Clutch v1, v2, a Profile Z, and an Ezra on bikes right now.  I've ridden Nankai's, NYB's, just about everything out there. 

The Clutch v2 is the best freecoaster out there.  I love mine.  Good price for a great working hub.

I would expect to pay 450 - 750 depending on who you get to build it and what kinds of requirements you have.

Hell yeah, post that shit!
What's considered short on a cruiser? What about bb height? I've looked at some cruisers online and most seem to have low BBs relative to wheel size, I guess they're more racing oriented but surely a higher BB and shorter rear end would be more fun for street or park.

So this frame has the following geo:
Toptube: 22
Headtube: 75 degree
Seattube: 69 degree
Chainstay: 13.75 slammed, currently sitting just under 14
Bottom bracket:  12.7
Standover: 9.5

The bottom bracket is pretty low compared to stuff like the Colony & Sunday cruisers at 13.8, and the old Fit CR24's that had 13.5 bb's.  I kind of like it with the short back end, though.  The feel of the bike is still a lot like a 20.  I've been playing around with a LOT of cruisers and have another custom that's a 13.25bb with a 14 inch rear end that rides pretty good.  I'm about to do another custom that's going to be similar, and maybe another where I push the geo to extremes. 

Just for reference, my 20 is a Mutiny Animist with a 14 inch rear end and 21.5 top tube.  I can't ride any of these newer frames with ridiculously short rear ends and crazy tall bars.  I just loop out and eat shit all the time. 

I need to post up a more recent clip of me dicking around on my micro ramp I built in my garage.  The ramp is tiny, ceiling is super low, and the cruiser makes it all a little bit smaller feeling too.

You got recent clips on your non public Instagram?

Oops.  Made it not private now.

Sick bike. Is it a model c?

It's a custom Stout with a super short rear end (by cruiser standards).  I've got a Model-C that I need to put the back wheel back on post on here too.  I've got a bunch of cruisers I should post up actually.

Built this cruiser up recently. 

I've got some clips of my riding street on my cruisers on my Instagram:
and a couple on YouTube:
