Too noisy freewheel

Postby Alyona on Sun May 16, 2021 2:53 pm

I bought a boeing used Strida LT. So it is my first experience of ghost type of bicycle.
My Strida is in very good, nearly new condition. The only point is too noisy operation of the freewheel.
I had a chance to compare two Strida bicycles. And the sound is really noisy. What can I do to solve this problem? Thank you.

So your freewheel is looking like this one, correct?

That is for my meaning already a less noisy version compared to the aluminium one.
I'd simply try to replace this version with a new one of the same type.

From my experience the new plastic freewheel has a very different sound then the aluminum freewheel, and I don't like the sound! It has a high pitched whine when coasting, the aluminum may be a little be noisier but I personally prefer the lower pitched sound of the aluminum freewheel.

Cheers, Bill

Thanks a lot. But I do not know how exactly looks the freewheel of my Strida. Looks like plastic but I cannot see what the inner part is made of - metall or also plastic. I have compared the sound with another Strida bike of 2012 year of manufacture. That bike has aluminium freewheel and it sounds much more silent than my freewheel.

It's not that complicated, if it is whole black it will be a plastic freewheel :wink:

My dear EVO is quite noisy now. I hear "rrooohh" kind of noise when not pedaling. Also when leading my EVO the chainwheel rotates. Is new freewheel the only option?

BTW The ball joint socket is broken.... again... Argh! Right now I can't figure out or remember how that happen AGAIN.

What's wrong with me?

Cheers,
Marsal
