Rated 4 out of 5 by Djaarj Not bad, shimano!
I have install this frewheel jn my DJ bike.For two seasons it works and does not make any problems for me. It sounds fairly quiet. Almost unheard. It better when Dicta or ACS freewheels. But it is not suitable for trial i think. In the end it's a good thing for this price, must have!

Rated 4 out of 5 by NineBolts Freewheel that lasts
Fed up with using cheap freewheels that start making bad noises after a few rides. This one seems better than the rest and was available in various sizes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Bought this freewheel as a replacement for my White Industries ENO freewheel, looking for saving some money as this only cost one-third of the ENO freewheel. I use it on my daily ride to work (17km each way). I had to ditch the Shimano freewheel after just 1½ week. The last three days I rode the freewheel skipped too many times for my liking. Several times I was almost thrown of the bike. I admit that the weather was very wet and snowy, but I have been on other cheaper freewheels that lasted much longer.
Now I am back on a new (and expensive) White Industries ENO freewheel and I my daily rides are again a pleasant and safe experience.
I really hope this has just been a faulty product. Otherwise I will not recommend this free wheel for anything other than completely dry conditions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Good item for price, very quite, light weight
I would recommend this product, I have owned this product for about a week now. I have seen some more negative reviews on this product and yes i do agree that this will probabally not last that long but hey, its good for the price :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Not particularly strong,started skipping very soon
Note:this review is for a freewheel that was used for urban\trials riding,probably not its intented use.However,I was expecting more from a Shimano product as far strenght and reliability are concerned,indeed it started making noises and skipping after only a few hours of (admittedly,harsh) use, therefore not a good quality item IMO,at very least not able to take some abuse as you would expect on a singlespeed bike.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Had For About 5Months Now.
Bought this item with a 16tooth cog. Worked fine up untill about a month ago. Since then it has been skipping and engagement. Not all the time but at least twice evreytime i ride. Which as you can imagine is off putting when trying to do a trick.
I Have given it a thrashing though. Ridden everyday to work. 5Miles.
And i ride at least one day each weekend.
Decided to upgrade to the NSBikes SS Cassette Hub.
