TUFFNECK Rollacoaster
« on: May 30, 2008, 01:08:56 PM »
My freecoaster is awesome.

Having had a Taska, 2 Nankai's, a Geisha, a Reverse and a modified Federal coaster in the last five years it's great to finally have a freecoaster that isn't massively disappointing.







When you pedal forward, the Driver (17) pushes the 4 Clutch Drive Bearings (16) up the machined ramps in the Clutch (15). The Clutch (15) is forced against the drive ring installed in the hub shell (not pictured). When under pedaling load, the drive torque is transferred directly through the Driver/Clutch Drive Bearings/Clutch straight to the drive ring/hub note that the Clutch Pawls (12) and Clutch Pawl Springs (13) enclosed in the Clutch Spring Retainer (14) (e.g. the cassette mechanism) is isolated from any load.

When you stop pedaling, the Clutch Spring (9) pushes the Clutch (15) off the drive ring, allowing you to coast (backward or forwards).

When you back pedal, the Driver (17) and Clutch (15) rotate backwards together, but the Clutch Pawls (12) allow the Clutch Spring Retainer (14) to remain stationary on the Clutch Spring (9). This means there is no spring binding, reducing wear on the spring.

I hope this makes sense?

i'm very disappointed because the seller, Elite Cycle Imports did not send the hubs the way i prefer. until now, 3months later, i still haven't had my hubs. must be my bad luck,... but it could've been avoided.

Yes , its clicks like a cassette with about half the noise. Its sort of built like a cassette as well as a freecoaster. The two advantages it has is that you can adjust the slack without dismantling it, and it automatically disenguages itself so you dont have to give it a backwards tap.

Probably not. The design came from road bikes in Europe and a guy from Taiwan merged the idea with a freecoaster which is now available under a few names.

Tuff Neck used to make some garbage back in the 80s. hope this holds up better than their older stuff.
