Details
IRD have discovered many of you with older bikes not wanting to upgrade to cassettes, but are finding that a quality freewheel almost impossible to find. That's because all the big Asian manufacturers are only churning out freewheels for department store bikes. IRD made these purposely nice enough to put on a vintage Cinelli road bike, but affordable enough to use as a replacement on cheaper bikes with. The Classica takes design cues from the reliable Shimano 600 series.

- Index shifting waves and special teeth profiles
- Fully chrome-plated cogs
- Heat-treated for durability
- Alloy and polycarbonate glass fiber spacers
- Double row precision bearings
- Labyrinth seals
- Stronger pawl springs than on the Defiant series
- Available in 5, 6 and 7 speeds

Teeth Ratios:
- 13-24T = 13 / 15 / 17 / 20 / 24
- 13-28T = 13 / 16 / 20 / 24 / 28
- 13-32T = 13 / 16 / 20 / 24 / 32
- 14-28T = 14 / 16 / 20 / 24 / 28


Requires a Shimano type splined freewheel removal tool. (Shimano's own is SJSC part #870)

Ird Five Speed Freewheel

ProsDoes what it should well.
I am about to order my third one. I use this on a Carlton fitted with Campagnolo components, and the five speed freewheel fits a treat in the rather narrow space [by modern standards] on the back axle.

I change the freewheel and chain about every second year. I have nothing but praise for this IRS unit with the 13-24 teeth range. This fits with the archaic Super Record derailleur I use, and the actual gear shifts are easy, certain and almost silent. The pick-up of power is effective, while the over-run is reasonably quiet.

I give this a five star rating.

Freewheel Widths

What 5 speed freewheels do you have for 120 OLD rear hub?
Hi,

Which freewheels will fit will depends on your hubs offset, the three 5spd freewheels we stock are sized between 29 and 31mm so as long as you have enough clearance for a freewheel of that size you'll be fine.

Thanks.
Total Width?

What is the total width of the freewheel?. I am asking since the photo seems to indicate a 6 speed body with 5 cogs on it. It shall be used on a bike with 120mm rear spacing and as such there is limited space.
Hi,

This freewheel is 29mm wide.

Thanks.
Is The 5 Speed Cassette For A 126Mm Hub?
By

Hi,

You should be able to run these 5spd freewheels on a hub with a 126mm axle without any issues.

Thanks.
Is The Freewheel Threaded? From The Photo It Looks Like It Is Splined
By

This is for a c1984 tandem and I'm trying to lower the gearing.
Old worn out freewheel is 14 _ 28t and is threaded. Is this one compatible? Do I need an adapter??
Hi,

This is indeed a threaded freewheel so should be compatible with your bike without the need for any adapter.

Thanks.
Spacing

Please can you confirm the centre to centre spacing fron the outer to inner sprockets on the IRD Classica 5 speed freewheel. Also, is it possible to swap sprockets.

Thank you
Hi,

The spacing of this freewheel is just under 29mm. The sprockets appear to be threaded onto the free-wheeling unit so in theory they could be swapped out but as the sprockets are not available individually, it seems like a pointless exercise.

Thanks.
