Im lookings to convert a shimano coaster brake to freewheel. Does any body know of an adapter which will do such a thing?

Cheers

Andy

I knew there had to be something out there...

Made by Suntour, so it's a properly designed bit of kit.
I think it only works on coaster hubs, otherwise I'd buy one myself.

Any good?


PS: What does this mean?
"the unit will freewheel in both directions to eliminate back pedal in the freewheel mode."

Can you do fakies/ roll-outs in free-wheel mode without the need to back-pedal? Sounds excellent.

Hi

Thanks for that - my hub is shimano and as per usual is a different size. They are the only ones I can find.

Thanks

Andy

I think I have a freecoaster freewheel at home, I will check.

& yes a coaster/ freecoaster will let you roll backwards without the pedals turning.
