ProsEconomy price, well made
I bought this 5 speed freewheel to replace a worn out 7 speed that had been incorrectly fitted to a vintage Dawes touring frame. After re-dishing the wheel and some fiddling with spindle spacers it fits and shifts perfectly and has a fashionably load click.
Useful purchase.

ProsSmooth changing. Not expensive
My old Peugeot had a five speed freewheel which was a little reluctant to shift with friction levers.
This new freewheel with its modern contoured teeth was such a remarkable improvement that I wish I had bought one years ago.
The increase from 24teeth to 28 also flattened the hills just a little bit

ProsLimited market but still available here, very happy, fitted well with the Clarks chain.
Good solid "retro" 5 speed freewheel, similar to other review as I had a old 1970s Claud Butler frame that had 120mm rear hub. Fitted like a glove! Bought back memories from that era.
Good Quality Freewheel At An Excellent Price

ConsBit noisy
ProsCheap and excellent quality
I recently fitted one of these to my vintage Claud Butler when the Shimano replacement for the worn out orginal proved too wide. (Changing into 5th/10th was difficult in consequence.) The Sunrace immediately solved this problem and is great in use: smooth shifting and strong. Reviews on the internet said it was a bit noisy but good quality and I think this is bang on. In fact, I don't mind the noise: reminds me of the 1980s!

ISO or English thread?

ISO or English thread, please?
This is an ISO thread. SK 30/01/24
Fit with vintage Claud Butler
28 Jul 2021
This is really an answer to another question. The Campag hub on early Claud Butler Dalesman and Ladydale which is marked England 1370 by 24.BSC is indeed English thread and accepts this freewheel perfectly (5 thou difference from ISO)
Can I use this Sunrace screw on freewheel with my old Campag hub?
21 Jan 2021
You have a Sunrace screw on 5 speed freewheel, to 28 teeth. I want to replace the Regina Oro I 've just removed from the wheel and keep the same gearing. The wheel is original to my 1982 Claud Butler Dalesman. The hub is a Campag and says on it "England 1370 x24.BSC". I believe that the former number is the diameter and the latter the threads per inch. Will your Sunrace fit my hub? Thanks.
Sadly we cannot confirm this for certain- it sounds like your Campag hub is English threaded in which case this should work- however it is more common for them to be Italian threaded which would mean this freewheel will not suit.

Can I use this with a Shimano SIS derailleur?
19 Jul 2020
Yes this is Shimano compatible.

Width / Spacing
19 Jul 2020
I have an old Raleigh with a 6sp Shimano TZ20 and there is a chain line problem when on the smallest cog. Can you let me know the comparative widths and cog spacings between the Shimano 6sp and the SunRace 5sp.

I am hoping to cure the issue by going to 5sp.
The overall width is a touch over 29mm,

What is the stack height (i.e. the total width)?
23 May 2020
I want to know the stack height (the total width of this). So I want to know if my rear dropout is big enough or if it is to small.
From back to front is 30mm but the back is recessed by approx 1mm so from the hub to the outside is effectively 29mm RT
Does it need special tools?
27 Aug 2019
Is the freewheel simply screw-on, or does it need special tools?
Nope, they simply screw on with hands!

Will it work with Westwood wheel?
27 Aug 2019
Is this compatible with this wheel?
Does it work with this: 26 x 1 3/8 590 Rear Westwood Wheel with Nutted solid axle & Silver Steel Rim Screw on Freewheel Type - 36 Hole
Hi there,

This should work absolutely fine, however, as we have never done this we cannot say for certain im afraid.

Width difference between 5/6/7 speed freewheels
29 Jul 2019
Hi, I need a replacement freewheel for an old Dawes Galaxy. This should fit, but wondered if the 6 or 7 speed options you have are the same width or wider? I am limited by narrow 120mm OLD rear drop outs and know a 5 speed definitely fits OK. I think 7 speed won't but 6 speed might. Can you advise?
6 and 7 will be significanly wider, 5 and 6 sprocket spacing is almost the same so the total will be much wider, 7 in narrower sprocket spacing but not enough even to be as little width as 6.
what tool do I need to remove this freewheel.Preferably from Parktool.thank you

Mailard compatible?
20 May 2019
Hi will this fit a 1980 Mailard freehub please?
Hi there,

Unfortunately, as we do not have any of those here to test it, we would not know whether this would or not I'm afraid.

Shimano 5 speed uniglide 1970s hub
08 Dec 2017
Looking for a 5 speed style cassette for a Shimano 600 120mm uniglide hub, wondering if this would fit as the hub take a cassette not a threaded freewheel?

This freewheel will only fit threaded hubs. If you need a cassette I would suggest having a look at your current cassette/freewheel and emailing [email protected] with the details.

Eagle ICG freewheel
24 Aug 2017
I'm trying to replace my broken 5 speed non index freewheel off a Falcon racer. The old eagle ICG freewheel screwed onto the hub and was removed using a 2 notched tool. Can you advise if this freewheel will fit . Thanks

Although this freewheel requires a splined fixing/removal tool it will share the same thread so should thread onto your hub without any issues.

The Width Please.
19 Feb 2017
What is the width of the freewheel please?

This freewheel is 31mm wide.

5 Speed Threaded Freewheel
19 Jul 2015
Hi there.

I have an Everest threaded freewheel that I'm looking to replace. Given they both hve a threaded mount is the main difference on this SunRace freewheel the extraction element i.e. it's Shimano rather than Suntour 2 prong?

Also what chain would you recommend for this freewheel?

Many thanks.

The threading will be the same between these two freewheels so the only difference would be the different tool required for removal. Any 3/32" 5/6spd chain would be suitable for use with this freewheel.

Hi, I am in need of one which I can manage to lock or permanently remove the freewheel function. Can you give me a hand?
Thanks and regards

Maximum build 30 mm

I'm afraid we don't sell any freewheels where you are able to turn off the freewheeling function.
