The Cost of Maintenence

← Back to Forums


yeah, my experience working in a shop that tries to re-use as much as possible, the old freewheels def function much better over the years than any cassettes. they’ll still function, shift, and not slip, even when you mix and match used chain with used freewheel pretty frequently. i wouldn’t even attempt it with a used cassette, and it’s difficult to convince people that they really just need to suck it up and buy a new cassette and a new chain. the “more and lighter is better” mentality of the industry sucks for folks that just need to get around town, reliably.
