The Freewheel

The freewheel has advantages over a coaster brake.  A freewheel spins 'freely' when the child pedals backwards, as opposed to a 'coaster brake' wheel that causes the bike to brake when the child pedals backwards.  We include a freewheel with all Woom Bikes except for the Woom 2 (the Woom 2 has an optional free wheel kit we encourage customers to purchase but, per United States law, any 16' bike must be shipped with a coaster brake wheel installed).
