Looking for freewheel hub or wheel

I am looking for a freewheel hub or wheel. Must be disc compatible, If whole wheel I would prefer 24” but I’m interested in anything 20, 24, 29, or 32

Thanks, Gryphon

Good luck trying to find that. Freewheel hubs and unicycles are rarely sold here, and when they are, they’re snatched up within the hour. My advice to you is to just haunt the trading post every day and be the first to see any freewheel getting sold. Truthfully speaking, though, you may wait for a year or two. Alternatively, you could check out the freewheel mega thread here:

If you really want a freewheel, this thread should help you learn how to build your own freewheel hub out of an old bicycle clicker hub, if you want.

Either way, the only way you can ever obtain a freewheel hub is through a pretty extreme method.

I’ll probably have a freewheel hub (or complete 27"5 wheel) to sell once I have received my Flik Flok hub in June. However, I’m located in France so this could cost a lot to send it to Canada. Will you come to Unicon? I could bring it there.

Unfortunately i will not be going to Unicon but i am willing to pay shipping! what kind of hub is it and do you know how much youd like to get for it?

It’s a Nimbus drift trike cotterless hub, laced into a 27"5 Qx wheel with its 160mm rotor, bought new 18 months ago. Still not sure about the price.
To be honest, there’s another guy in France who is interested in it. It would be much easier for me to avoid an international sending. I’ll let you know when I know more.

Found a JR P-hub, thanks everybody.

Just out of curiosity where did you find that? New or second hand?

Bought it new off this site


I wonder what their stock level is like - they pretty much seem to be the last place that more affordable freewheel hubs are available from.

Now that JR is no more, once these hubs are gone they may well not be any more.

@gryphonmoore how did you get the dimensions of this hub for your wheel build? Did you measure it once you received it?

I ordered one from Flatout but the order status says “Awaiting Fulfillment” - I hope someone there is really working on this and they are not out of stock…

I never measured it, I dropped it off at the local bike store as I’ve been too busy lately and just wanted to ride! As for your order saying “waiting fulfilment” that happened to me as well but it was shipped about 9 days after I ordered.

I should really put this info on the thread on here: Freewheel Unicycling Megathread - #3 by mowcius

@mowcius thanks for the info. I hope I’ll be able to use it - still no sign of this being shipped to me :confused:

Oh no, that’s not good!

Have you been able to get in touch with them?

I think it is a one person business so it takes some time to ship and to respond to messages. I just got a text today, so perhaps it will ship soon.

I’ve been looking to purchase that freewheel hub from JR linked in this thread. I know how to build a unicycle, but the only part that confuses me about this hub is how I’m supposed to fit cranks on it. Since it’s made for a bike, I don’t see where I could put on any cotterless cranks.

It’s made for a drift trike?

It’s a direct drive drift trike front hub. Drift trikes are just like a freewheeling unicycles with lots of extra bits…

I don’t understand your question about cranks. It looks like it takes the standard square taper cotterless cranks. See the picture below. I’m planning on using the cranks from UDC. Best United Black Cotterless Crank Arms Online - 150mm

Sorry. I thought this was a hub for typical chain driven bikes. It didn’t even occur to me that name “drift trike” implies a direct drive. Thanks for the information. Guess I’m building yet another unicycle.
