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

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

Do Not Buy This Under Any Circumstances

ConsAppalling build quality, disintegrates after 80 miles.
ProsNone
I bought this a few months ago, seduced by the 'quality upgrade' pitch. I fitted it to my vintage 531 bike just before this year's Eroica... and the thing completely broke after 80 miles. The shaft was still correctly engaged with the hub.... but the rest of the freewheel was floating all over the place. Luckily a course mechanic had a spare - one of those 'cheaper' ones – and got me back on the road. But he was amazed at how the IRD freewheel had come apart. He threw it in the bin, saying it was completely unrepairable.

SJS – you really shouldn't be selling this junk, let alone recommending it.

Very peed off with my wasted £40 plus pounds.
SJS Customer Service:
Hi, Thank you for your feed back. I am sorry to hear your cassette broke after so few miles, we have sold hundreds of IRD cassettes they are normally very reliable. If you had returned the failed cassette to us we would have sent it back to IRD for analysis, they would no doubt have sent through a replacement.
Great Product

Prosexcellent product
The freewheel provided on my new bike had a ridiculous 34 tooth to 24 tooth drop. Consequently the 32 to 28 drop was a huge improvement. Excellent customer service, delivery and price.

Can I Use This With My Campagnola C-Record Hub?
By
17 Jun 2017
Hi there - 2 questions really - 1) will this screw onto my C-record hub, which currently has a Sachs 7 speed freewheel which I want to replace 2) is the centre to centre spacing between cogs 5mm?

Thanks.
Hi,

These freewheels use the same thread as the old Sachs freewheels so it should thread onto your hub without any issues. The spacing between the hubs is indeed 5mm.

Thanks.

Is This A Compact Freewheel G
By

i.e. will it fit on a campaign 126mm rear hub to replace a standard 6sp
Hi,

This 7spd freewheel will sit wider than a standard 6spd so may not fit. This freewheel is 34mm wide so it would be worth you checking the space available to see if you can fit this before you purchase it.

Thanks.
How Much Does It Weigh?

Will This Screw On To A Mavic Road Hub?
By
11 Jan 2016
Hi,

Providing your Mavic hub has threads that are 1.370" x 24 TPI then this freewheel should screw straight on.

Thanks.
Required Space On Axle?
By
26 Jun 2015
Hello Can I use this freewheel with a ratio 13/32 on a wheel with 130mm axle? 37 to 38 mm seems to be the limit? Best regards Ulf
Hi,

You should be fine using this freewheel with your set up as it only takes up 34mm of width.

Thanks.
Have A Shimano Mf Tz21 7 Speed Freewheel
By
11 May 2015
Will I be able to change my Shimano MF TZ21 7 Speed Freewheel to this? Looking for a 7 speed with a easy "granny gear"
Hi,

Most freewheels use the same thread, including those two. The only issue you may encounter is you may have to re-adjust your rear derailleur to account for the different range.

Thanks.
