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

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!

Will This Suit A 126Mm Axle?
20 Sep 2016
What is the gear spacing?
Want to upgrade from a 5 speed suntour.

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.

14 - 34T V'S Sora Rd3400
22 Jul 2016
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

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.

Campagnolo Compatibity

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

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