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
- 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 / 19 / 21 / 24
- 13-32T = 13 / 15 / 18 / 21 / 24 / 32
- 14-32T = 14 / 17 / 20 / 24 / 28 / 32
- 14-34T = 14 / 16 / 20 / 24 / 28 / 34

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

Prosgreat quality and looks
Truly a piece of craftmanship. Looks good and I love the sound of the spring. This 34T freewheel in combination with a classic 39T front chainring got me about the same range as a compact crankset on a modern bike. Helped greatly to get me up the Mur-De-Huy last weekend. Also, it just looks great on a classic road bike. So from a bike that was only usable for crits and flat roads, it's now a mountain eating machine!

upgrade for screw-on shimano 5-speed freewheel
By
26 Jul 2017
I'm looking for a 32t 5- 6- or 7-speed freewheel to replace a 5-speed Shimano MF-ZO15 screw-on freewheel. The bike has 126mm spacing. The current freewheel measures approx 30mm. It looks like there is more space on the hub (Miche). I can send a photo if you need one! Do you think this would be compatible?
Hi,

This 6spd freewheel measures 32mm, so if you think you have the additional room for an extra 2mm then you should be okay to fit this freewheel as a replacement.

Thanks.
6 Speed Gearing Optons
By

On the IRD website the only gearing option listed for the 6 speed is 13-28. Although I am able to select the option for 13-24 on this website, and it is listed as in stock, I am wondering if you actually have it or if it is just a mistake. I did not believe IRD made a 6 speed 13-24.
Hi,

IRD make these 6spd freewheels in 5 different ratios all of which we stock. These include the 13-24T option.

Thanks.
Is This Ok To Use With Friction Shifters?

Hi,

This freewheel is fine for use with a set of friction shifters.

Thanks.
What Does The 34T Look Like?

Which one is in the photo on your site, I have looked elsewhere.
Does the 34 stick out granny style like this

Hi,

Our photo is of the 14-32T option. The 14-34T option jumps from 28T to 32T for the last jump so there is a noticeable size difference but it is nowhere near as pronounced as shown in your image.

Thanks.
Will This Suit A 126Mm Axle?
By

What is the gear spacing?
Want to upgrade from a 5 speed suntour.
Hi,

It will depend on where the hub is sat along the axle but you should be okay with fitting this to a 126mm spaced hub. This freewheel takes up 32mm.

Thanks.
14 - 34T V'S Sora Rd3400
By

Hi, I Am Looking To Increase The Gearing On My Old Holdsworth Elan. I Was Looking To Replace My Starlight 6 Gear Freewheel (Which Is A Replacement For A Suntour Unit). I Assume That It Will Fit The Threads On The Suntour Sealed Hub.But Think That It May Not Be Compatable With My Shimano Rd 3400 Which I Think Has A Max Of 28T. If It Is Not Compatible I Would Apprecaite Suggestions For A Replacement. Many Thanks Jon
Hi,

You are correct in thinking that your RD-3400 won't be suitable for use with that freewheel. You can however use a 9spd MTB derailleur with your 9spd road shifters fine and these will easily cope with a 14-34T freewheel. We do the 9spd Deore RD-M591 derailleur which will work, these are SJSC part number 39048.

Thanks.

Would this freewheel be compatible with my 1980's scre on campagnolo hubs
Hi

Yes this should fit, the Shimano Compatible part of the title refers the indexing of the sprockets.
