Default Re: Resistance while clutch is pulled

I seem to remember someone in the forum had a freewheel sprocket that allowed pedaling without moving the chain, but this required a pullstart which are prone to constant failure unless you have a light touch.
The pin lock sprocket looked like a much better idea, but it requires some clearance and looked dangerous to me unless the pins lock somehow. Imagine tooling along at 30mph and suddenly the rear wheel locks from a pin coming out....
Mind you, this may not be an issue at all if the pins lock somehow, but I've never seen one up close to know how they work. No slur intended to the product!
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
