RockMan 135

Screw-on
Splined

Sold out

  • Available in screw-on or splined fittings!
  • Unique design!
- New from Singapore-based trials brand RockMan, their 135 freewheel!
- 135 engagement points are achieved by using 3 offset groups of 3 pawls into a 45 tooth ratchet.
- A unique design sets it apart from other 135-click freewheels on the market.
- A large sealed bearing helps provide improved drive shell stability. Please note that this produces more 'drag' than a regular single speed freewheel.
- This configuration allows a wider pawl to be used, giving more strength and better ratchet engagement.
- 1.37" x 24tpi thread fits almost all hubs and cranks.
- Also available in a splined fitment for Shimano HG splined cranks (e.g. Crewkerz, Clean, Bonz), not any others (e.g. Echo).
- Seals on each side of the freewheel help prevent the ingress of dirt and water, preventing premature wear to the internals of the freewheel.
- Recessed extractor tabs are suitable for use with Park Tool FR-8 removal tool.
- Laser-etched RockMan graphics help make the freewheel stand out nicely.
- Available in 18t only.
- Weight: 180.2g

Freewheel width: 18.08mm

Please ensure bottom bracket spacers outside diameter is less than 27mm or the freewheel may rub on them.

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. Failure to bed the freewheel in correctly will void the warranty.

Additional Information

Please note that this freewheel MUST be bedded in with 'normal' riding before trials use. We also recommend thinning out the grease inside this freewheel after the bedding in period, since the sealed bearings will expel any excess grease when new and this will enter the pawl mechanism.

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, i would like to know how strong is this free wheel, like, does it slip a lot, and is it sturdy enough? I have already destroyed an echo tr freewheel. Thanks, Vlad

Hi Vlad!
The Echo TR freewheels are fairly durable, but sometimes certain factors can affect their performance. They're supplied without lube, so if you ride in wet or damp conditions, or in dirty/muddy places, they can often get a little clogged or rusty which reduces the performance of the pawls and springs. This leads to skipping, and ultimately can lead to the outer shell breaking.
As the 135-click freewheels we sell from Comas, Monty, Bonz, RockMan and so on are all sealed bearing this means that those factors are much less of a problem. The sealed bearings also give more outer shell stability which helps keep things running well too.
As long as you bed them in a little before using them at full force for trials, you shouldn't have issues with skipping or anything along those lines. When you first get the freewheel it will probably be a little quiet, but once they're bedded in you should hear a difference in them - they will generally sound a little louder and engagement will be crisper. Riding around on flat ground for a while and/or doing some gentle trials moves should be enough.

Feels really solid

Posted by Vlad

I got this after my echo tr literally exploded. This. Is . A. Huge. Difference. First off, there is a noticeable difference between a 108 and a 135 click freewheel, this engages so fast. Not only that but it is also a really solid engagement. Although i have had one minor skip, this happened with the other freewheels I have owned. Tho it has more friction than open bearing systems, its barely noticeable when on a bike. As always, for the break-in, nothing beats a drill and a freewheel tool, do that for 20 minutes with some free-time inbetween, and it'll work. I recommend it, 10/10-IGN
