Inside a tensile freewheel

3 posts in this topic

Now then folks. To cut a long story short, I've done some hub swap arounds on my bike collection, and my dirt jumper has ended up with a because screw on disc. I have an old tensile 60 click on my desk and would ideally like to weld up the lock ring and stick it on the dirt jumper. Now the removal splines on the tensile prevent me from putting this onto the dirt jumper to allow the ratchet to work the right way. What I want to know before I waste any time stripping it is: Can you reverse the pawls in these freewheels so i can run the outer ring backwards? It would save me having to look for a white industries mtb fw and will sound almost as sweet as the pro2 I've just removed from it. The only other option I have is to grind off the removal splines very carefully and do it that way but i'd rather not have to attack it.

Cheers! :)

How come you're planning on turning the outer ring around? You wouldn't need to to run it on your rear hub, it'd just screw on as-is and work straight away?
