    Hey guys. Well iv been considering these wheels on a MT for a while now and have been thinkin these wheels say that the 7speed cassets are threaded. Is this normal?? and if not it woudent unscrew when the wheel is going forward but ur pedals arnt moving (hents unscrewing the thread?)would it?
    might seem like a silly question but just doing my research.
    Also what do u think about them??

    yes it is normal but 7 speed freewheels are getting harder to find as 8,9, and 10 (and even more) are more prominent. They're still out there though.
    The thread is a right hand thread so when you pedal it tightens and when you coast it freewheels so it won't unscew. In fact sometimes they're hard to get off even w/ the right tool. The newer style is a freewheel hub (f/w is on the hub) and the cluster is called a cassette. These types slide onto the cogs of the hub f/w and are individually interchangeable so that you can set up the perfect gearing for your app.
