Great price - great product,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shimano Tourney 7 Speed Mountain Bike ScrewOn Freewheel (Misc.)
I commute on my bicycle about 10 miles a day and my old freewheel was slipping quite a lot, so I decided to buy a replacement. This is very sturdy, easy to install and facilitates very smooth changes! Remember to buy a new chain too if you're getting a new freewheel. I went for the SRAM PC80.

Actually, it is the chain that causes the problem. As the chain gets worn out it gets stretched and the fitting on the sprockets teeth get bad and it starts "eating" the sprockets. Check the chain from time to time. Pop in a bike shop and they will measure it for wear with a measuring tool for free. If you change the chain in time, the cassette/freewheel will last much longer (3 times, they say).
