White Ind makes VERY good components, although expensive, but it is worth it as the recumbent bike it is on is used every day!!!!!

You Pay for what you get it will be worth not having to replace the cheaper versions

Freewheel that comes with the (imitation) kit is garbage I bought a jack shaft kit on eBay for the same price as the HD one on sick bikes.com because the shipping was free.(240.00 garbage is what I bought)I wasted a lot of time trying to put that piece of crap together 3weeks of fabricating After the shaft kept sliding to right and the freewheel bearings where grinding up after riding one test ride for 200ft before chain broke figured I just have to get another freewheel noticed there Is an HD freewheel kit cause the freewheel cost 80.00 bucks and I effed this last (imitation) kit to a pulp so I purchased a he REAL kit from sbp not knowing if it was going to be crap it took three hours to install I grinded a small area on engine and shaft ... The instructions helped immensely! If you want to see the bike Google "loopedvintagecycles" or Instagram it cause I felt like a commercial writing all this that'll give u an idea of the time frame it took

This freewheel is a very high quality and it has a well made bearing with a solid ratchet sound to it which you can tell its a high quality bearing. Buy a shift kit and buy this bearing too its well worth it Solves the problem please buy it you save yourself a big headache

Totally stoked with heavy duty front freewheel beering! As the standard beering is not good on high hp setup fail in no time without this item.

AWESOME! I live in a semi-rural area and my regular commute involves a few dirt roads. On my full-suspension mountain bike setup my hardware takes a bit of a beating and I went through two of the regular freewheels in as many months-- they literally fell apart. Then I put one of these on and it is has been 100% reliable. That was 1,100 miles ago. KNOWING you will not suddenly be stranded many miles from home with NO way to pedal makes this item WELL worth the extra $$!!!

about the HD white ind. freewheel. I have caned this thing since i fitted it. Both with a 360w motor and my trusty 200w. my current battery is a cell man 9.2Ah 24V li-po. a good quality bearing grease is a nice additive to this freewheel unless you like the 'loud and proud' ratchet sound.
This freewheel has taken everything i have dished out. not one skip or failure as yet, and it's now a year approximately.
my set up has varied between 44 - 48t chainring, and 16 - 19t alfine cog. experimentation pleases me. and I also suffer from upgrade -itis!
I recommend the white ind freewheel, and beware that the blue cover ring will loosen off unless you thread lock the son of a bitch or use q-fix(a superglue/powder fixative).
It's about the only place on the planet you can get this flanged freewheel too, trust me, I have looked.
go buy it.

Just got the new order today, here in France, all is good. After talking with White Industries about how often the HD Freewheel bearing should be serviced this is what they told me: "Thank you for your inquiry. To be honest, the application of the Sick freewheels is different from the standard freewheels we manufacture so it may be that you need to replace them more often since they are under more load that a regular freewheel. Even with that being said, we typically see people starting to replace bearings about once every three to four years. If you are riding in really wet and muddy conditions, then expect to replace the bearing more frequently."
Anyway, after a year with the first HD Freewheel bearing and no servicing, she blew up on me, so I just bought a new one and will take more care this time. Other than that great product and customer service from these guys.

SBP's can't be making much money on these - but gdszooks- awesome product. Compare to the price of a HD rear freewheel, and consider these must be designed by Sick Bikes. I can hammer on this one with no concerns. Only one gripe: wish it came with the kit!!
