Shimano 11-28 Thread-on 7-speed Freewheel

SORRY. THESE ARE NO LONGER BEING MADE.






11 - 13 - 15 - 18 - 21 - 24 - 28 Teeth


Medium-range variant of the amazing Mega7 freewheel, for riders who don't need the Mega7's super low 34 tooth sprocket.

This model features a unique, improved design, superior to all previous thread-on freewheels.

Excellent choice for bikes with "compact" chainwheels (fewer than 48 teeth on the largest)

It is generally good practice to replace the chain when you replace the freewheel.

We recommend the SRAM PC-58 chain for use with this freewheel.

This freewheel will index with any Shimano-type 7-speed shifter and derailer.

This freewheel uses the Park FR-1 extractor.

Are you sure you need a thread-on freewheel, not a cassette?

Comments:

I use this freewheel on an '84 Cannondale with a half step setup in the front (50/45). The gear ratios created by this setup are excellent for me in hilly Southeast PA. Some might say that the low gear is a bit tough, but I find it helps build hill strength. The best part about this freewheel is the gear selection. Its great to have the 11T, it really allows for fast descents. On the other end the 28T is fine for the uphills. Although the 45/28T makes some steep uphills a bit tough.That said...the freewheel is kinda heavy. It is made in Singapore and doesn't carry the same Japanese quality that an Ultegra or 105 does. There is quite a bit of float/wobble in the freewheel. But at [$] what do you expect. It certainly gets the job done. So far I have about 4,500 miles on it and its running strong.I really want to purchase another for a different bike..but they are unavailable.!!!

    Comments:

    This FW is perfect with a 50Hi/46Low chainring set-up for a well-spaced half-step shifting pattern (for those old folks who know what a half-step pattern is). Now if only someone sold a front derailleur that could handle a 50/46 chainring set-up. Otherwise, the 11T is great for exceeding 50MPH on steep downhills with a 56T chainring.
