2018 Kink Gap FC Bike

All new for 2018, the Kink Gap FC features the same great Gap specs, but adds a freecoaster rear hub for making backwards tricks a breeze. Featuring modern geometry, the frame, fork and bars add some 4130 chromoly into the mix, and is available in a classic Gloss Guinness Black colorway. Components found on the Gap FC take things up a notch, and are not to be missed.

Not only will it look the part, the 9” Kink Grizzly CC bars, Kink Stryker forks, Kink Bold HRD stem, sealed Mission Deploy freecoaster hub, and Kink Ridge 3-piece tubular chromoly cranks help it to feel and perform the part. The addition of a Pivotal seat and seat post are not to be overlooked either, and add both adjustability and modern compatibility. Updated frame geometry for 2018 brings a lower bottom bracket and raised standover height to the Gap FC, for a stable ride. Available now, worldwide from your preferred bicycle retailer!

Battle of the Freecoasters

*** Update: This project was put on hold indefinitely and was never put into production. We have since developed and released an improved freecoaster hub and wheel design based on traditional clutch technology. Please check out our Kink East-Coaster hub if you are looking for a great freecoaster! ***

With nearly every brand putting out another freecoaster these days, it’s probably no surprise to see one more popping up on the internet. Nearly a year ago we started developing our take on the freecoaster, and it’s a bit different than anything else you may have seen. We’ve been getting a lot of questions about the hub Tony Hamlin has been riding for the last several months and hopefully this answers a few of those.

Driver

You’ll notice this is our standard cassette driver, with a few crucial modifications. With the addition of our unique retention ring and coaster pawls, our cassette is easy transformed into a freecoaster.

Incite

Probably the biggest advantage to the Kink freecoaster system; it’s a simple upgrade to the existing Kink Incite cassette hub only. Simply purchase a few parts to upgrade your driver to a freecoaster. Another advantage is that you can have an 8T (or 9T) freecoaster, which doesn’t currently exist on the market. Of course if you aren’t feeling the freecoaster, you can easily switch it back to a cassette.
