Product Description:

Listing Update...We want to emphasize these are newer stock freewheel units and best characterized as entry-level units relative to our vintage Suntour models that sell for a much higher price. Without getting into all the technical details/differences, these freewheels simply do not spin as well as the vintage Suntour models. We are not trying to dissuade customers from considering this freewheel offering, but please do not expect similar quality relative to our Suntour in this particular case...pricing is a fairly good indicator of relative quality.

This item for sale is a new Shimano 5-speed freewheel with the "twisted-tooth" design (Model MF-Z015) that includes a 14-17-20-24-28 cluster. It is index (or as Shimano used to call it, "SIS") shifting capable, but please understand this is a UniGlide freewheel, which preceded Shimano's newer HyperGlide technology. Also please note this is an English threaded freewheel, which means it will screw onto a rear hub that has external threads (and will not work with splined rear hubs).

A note about new production Shimano freewheels...We have always been told (and confirmed through references at various websites that we trust) that Shimano effectively exited the UniGlide market in the late 80's and the freewheel markets in the late 80's or early 90's in favor of their more popular HyperGlide cassette designs that appear to be an industry standard in today's markets. However, since we have noted this particular freewheel offering was manufactured more recently, it appears a limited number of freewheel options are still in production (or at least production ceased at a much later date than the early 90's).

In any event, and regardless of Shimano's more recent freewheel production schedule, we still do not see many new Shimano freewheels available on the market, so we are pleased to make them available through our store (and at these prices...a very good value in a name brand freewheel...and maybe our best value in a 5-speed freewheel that should have a number of different applications).

Note to international customers regarding shipping...
We apologize to those that feel some of our international shipping charges are too high. We only charge actual shipping rates, but once an order exceeds a certain amount, we hesitate to use the least expensive US Postal Services First Class International service. We feel this way, because this service is not trackable or more risk of loss. We prefer the US Postal Services Priority Mail International service for more expensive orders, because this service is trackable at and less risk of loss. Unfortunately, this service is more expensive, especially for smaller/lighter packages, relative to the First Class International service. We are sorry about these higher shipping costs, but hopefully our notes help to explain why this is the case.

Note to international customers regarding customs...
We also apologize to those that feel their country import taxes, duties and brokerage fees are excessive. As a small US business, we are required by customs' laws to declare each order as a retail sale. Additionally, the declared order value must be equal to total store purchases and/or winning auction bids (less any shipping costs, as these are not considered in the declared value). As a result, each customer will be responsible for paying his/her own country taxes, duties and brokerage fees, which will be collected upon delivery. Again, we apologize for these additional costs, but we cannot afford the penalties and fines that come with breaking customs' we have to strictly abide by them.
