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

Questions & Answers (4)
Total Width?
19 Feb 2017
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.
SJS Customer Service:

This freewheel is 29mm wide.

Is The 5 Speed Cassette For A 126Mm Hub?

SJS Customer Service:

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

Is The Freewheel Threaded? From The Photo It Looks Like It Is Splined
23 Mar 2016
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??
SJS Customer Service:

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

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
SJS Customer Service:

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.
