More Sachs Stories
Over the past month I've worked on four additional Sachs freewheels. All have been 6 speeds and all had the two smallest cogs threaded onto the body while the other four cogs had splines and spacers. Pretty much the same as most Suntour, Shimano, and later model Regina freewheels.
But these four were different in that the bearings were loose, and not held in cages as was the case for Sachs 7 speed Aris freewheel mentioned in the previous posting. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
All in all, I like the loose bearings better. The Sachs freewheels really purr when they have been properly cleaned, serviced, and new grease applied. I like them so much I recently bought one for myself.

In my normal life I'm a pastor, really, a husband, and a dad. In my spare time I ride and wrench bikes. Freewheel Spa might be a good way to contribute to Soc Sec!
