A clutch fitted in the rear hub of a cycle, which engages the rear sprocket with the rear wheel when the pedals are rotated forwards, but permits the rear wheel to run on free from the rear sprocket when the pedals are stopped or rotated backwards. Freewheelcycles are usually fitted with hub brakes or rim brakes, operated by back pedaling.
Of a freewheel cycle, to run on while the pedals are held still.
Of a person, to ride a cycle of this manner; to coast in a vehicle having a freewheel. To ride a freewheel cycle.
To operate like a freewheel, so that one part moves freely over another which normally moves with it; -- said of a clutch.
to act without controls, external or internal; to live freely, independently, and without concern; -- of people.
This is the rear cluster of Cogs which are attached to the rear wheel through the freehub body.These are the rear gears in the back of the bike.
A one piece rear gear that allows the rider to back-pedal. Bearings are built in.
The Freewheel is a two part mechanism that is the rear cog fro the chain to ride on and it provides the necesary ratchet mechanism to allow pedaling and coasting.
the cluster of cogs on the rear wheelset that allows you to stop pedalling while the bike is still moving forwards.
a clutch (as on the rear wheel of a bicycle) that allows wheels to turn freely (as in coasting)
live unhurriedly, irresponsibly, or freely; "My son drifted around for years in California before going to law school"
coast in a vehicle using the freewheel
a bike or at least a back wheel that is not a fixed
a ratchet ing device that allows the rear wheel to roll forward without moving the cranks
Wheel that spins freely in one direction and locks in the other.
A cluster of gears with ratcheting mechanism contained within. It threads on to rear hub.
An older style gear cluster that threads onto the rear hub body. Freewheels are generally less expensive and heavier than cassette gear clusters.
The set of gears or sprocket wheels attached to the rear wheel of the bike. This allows the rear wheel to keep rolling when you stop pedaling.
Part of the rear gear cluster that allows you to coast without pedaling.
In mechanical or automotive engineering, a freewheel or overrunning clutch is a device in a transmission that disengages the driveshaft from the driven shaft when the driven shaft rotates faster than the driveshaft. An overdrive is sometimes mistakenly called a freewheel, but is otherwise unrelated.
