i need a new freewheel and i'm ordering it tonight ( amongst other things) and i was wandering if it was worth buying a welded one or loctiting my own, my lastloctited on came loose quite quickly but i was told by someone that a welded one is a rip off. whuch is the better one as i need to know so i can budget my spend.

It is worth getting a welded one because if you are ordering you might aswell the welded one i use has lasted ages and my old one that wasnt welded always used to come undone (Y) welded (Y)

For getting the freewheel off iit depends if it is front or rear even though they are both hard to get off you have to get something to leverage it off so a long pole to slip over the undoing device wud be perfect otherwise take it to your lbs thats what i normally do (Y)(Y)

You need a freewheel tool for your old one to be taken off.

You can get an ACS claws welded off selectbikes or if you wait you can get a new tensile freewheel for £30.

I do not know when they are coming out but, someone is testing one now so should be soon.(Y)

With the welded and non welded freewheels they come from different companies so the prices can never be the same as they charge us different prices maybe because the welding is done by another company.

The welded freewheels prevent them from undoing, so you shouldn't have to worry about your freewheel, as it will always stay tight, and not be loose when you don't know.

HI sam,

welded deffo worth the extra little bit of money, and it is only a little bit, i would say get it from tartybikes as its an amazing shop. and as far as removing the old 1 goes, well it is worth getting the tool, but if you really dont wish to, it can be removed with out it, use the taps on the acs and hit them with a flat bladed screw driver, and it will undo in the end, its worth clamping it to a work bench.

cheers
