Personally I don’t care whether it’s 3/32 or 1/8. I use White Industries freewheels and can’t think of a reason to use anything else. But it depends on the kind of riding - WI can’t be beaten for weather sealing, durability & serviceability but they cost a lot more than others.
I found the ACS one I had was good but needed fairly regular cleaning.
Yeah the White Industries ones look sweet. Currently I’m setting her up with a 1/8 chain, chainring and fixed cog, and was hoping to get a good 1/8 freewheel to match. She will be riding freewheel mostly – so I want to match the chain with that ideally. The fixed cog is just my attempt at converting her!
Now I might think about buying a 3/32 chainring, fixed cog and chain and match it with a white industries freewheel :|. Any recommendations on a 3/32 chain (maybe I’ll do a search)?
I ran a wi freewheel on my daily ride in london for 4 years we are talking 22mile daily comutes across all the worst crap that a road and rain can throw on a bike. I would clean the paws every now and again but it was still good enough to hand down to a mate when I changed ratio and bought another wi cog. They are good and worth the money and sound sick try Definitive Cyles for a price.
Any chance an 18 t freewheel from a Schwinn Madison will do? The chain is 1/8 so I’m guessing the freewheel will be too.
I’ve taken mine off so I can run a suicide config tall gear (I have a front brake) for tailwinds and solo track work.
