Jitsie 72.6 Freewheel

- 72 click, 6 pawl freewheel from Belgian brand Jitsie.
- Six high quality heat treated steel pawls are offset into groups of three into a tough 36 tooth ratchet, giving 72 engagement points per revolution.
- Stiff springs give a more direct, secure feeling engagement! Please note that this produces more 'drag' than a regular single speed freewheel.
- The bearing locking is also situated against the crank arm to keep it from coming loose - a nifty little feature!
- 4 large removal pockets are also set into the other side of the freewheel: these do not stick out like tabs, which allows shorter bottom brackets to be run, and therefore better chain lines and increased chain life.
- 1.37" x 24tpi thread fits almost all hubs and cranks.
- 18T size only.
- Weight: 179g

Overall Thickness: 17.17mm

This freewheel must be bedded in before trials use, to ensure any excess grease used when assembling the freewheel works away from the mechanism. You can do this by riding the freewheel around 'normally' for a few hours, both freewheeling and engaging the mechanism gently. If the freewheel is subjected to trials use without having been bedded in, the pawls will not engage correctly and this causes the freewheel to skip, damaging the pawls and ratchet. If you wish to speed up this process, you can thin the grease down with light oil like GT85 or WD40, by spraying it between the centre and outer teeth of the freewheel and rotating it. Failure to bed the freewheel in correctly will void the warranty.

Additional Information

Can be used on the rear as long as you have a hub with standard 1.37" x 24 tpi thread.

Always ensure the lockring is kept tight, failure to do so may limit chances of any warranty replacement being issued. If you need help with how to do this then just give us a call!

Freewheel sound level:

All freewheels tested under similar conditions. Please note that the sound level of a freewheel may change after bedding in. A 10 dB increase in sound level is approximately equivalent to double the perceived volume.

Hi Tyler!
This freewheel uses a standard 1.37" x 24tpi freewheel thread, not the smaller M30 'micro drive' freewheel thread.
If you have any more questions, please ask.

Value is excellent

Posted by Daniel

My last three freewheels over the past years have been echo SL 108.9, which I always rated highly. Being tight for cash and a wife closely looking over my shoulder as I dipped in to the joint account, I, and rather apprehensively, opted for the lesser engagement point Jitsie given its lower price. Straight out the bag the build quality of this really impressed me, tight tolerances and felt like such a quality freewheel. Fitted, bedded in and I can say that this freewheel is outstanding for the price, the lesser engagement points haven't made an impact on my riding whatsoever, and if I'm completely honest, I'm not even sure I can notice. Can happily say 100% will buy again and would definitely reccomend!

Hi Daniel!
Thanks for the detailed review. We're glad the freewheel is working well for you and avoided any relationship dramas, haha.
Thanks again!

Impressed with the quality

Posted by James

Really impressed with the quality for the price. Once bedded in it's as loud as my hope pro 2 was. Ridden a few times and really happy.
