There have been problems reported with that, too.visuthdy wrote:That's why I ask about the eLation V3 freewheel setup.

sickbikeparts.com wrote:Yes we are aware of the problem as it applies to mostly electric applications as the angular loads are much greater with an electric set up than with our gas jackshaft set up. We have contacted White about making a dual row bearing freewheel for us making a much more bullet proof set up. They said they would work on it but we haven't bugged them about it lately. I will contact them again and see if we can get the project started again. I will let you know what they say.

Support bearings? How much work did it require? Any chance of a kit?bobb wrote:I went the CSK route. Smooooooth. And I don't think it will lock up if I crash it. Good luck!!!

I thought this would be a good place to start. In V2 I was using an off the shelf CSK-PP35 with keyway on both rings. For V3 I have had a tailored Sprag clutch manufactured.
It is based around the CSK-PP35 but with dimenions more suited to bike components.
ID 1.37", 24TPI. This lines up with standard bike threads
Width 15mm. This is 1mm norrower than standard to allow to give 'perfect' fit to cranks able to accept freewheels.
Outer ring Keyway 8mm wide, 1mm deep
Combined bearing and sprag with seals on each side
They have saved me a lot of time and cost avoiding keys and 'special parts' being made, and so I felt worth the cost. Some on here may not agree, going with the lower cost due to no consideration to valueing their own time, since it is a hobby.
I can sell at AUD$50 plus postage. As an idea, postage to USA or UK could be as low as AUD$12 by standard air mail.
