Dear List,

Can you please stop hording the freewheels? If you leave them to your children, will they know what to do with them? Release them to the world...

Seriously though, I am trawling ebay for decent freewheels and anything with real quality is being sold at crazy prices.

Is it sacreligious to use modern offerings and are modern 5 and 6 speed freewheels (shimano, IRD) really that bad? What I would really like to know is how, technically, on topic freewheels are better?

Cheers
