The woom 2 FREEWHEEL KIT
Out of the box, the woom 2 comes with a coaster brake as well as two hand brakes. This optional conversion kit replaces your rear coaster hub with a freewheel hub (includes a tube and Schwalbe tire).
Why is the woom 2 the only model that comes with a coaster hub?
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission dictates that all bikes with a seat height 25” or less come with a coaster hub, however consumers do have the option to convert to a freewheel.
The primary benefit of this modification is to allow for backpedaling without braking, and to provide a smoother drivetrain with less friction.
As a service to our customers, woom exclusively offers this freewheel “at cost” for just $19.
We recommend getting the freewheel installed by a professional bike shop or certified mechanic. However, with a few tools and handiwork the task can be completed at home. For reference, a tutorial video can be found here.
Compatible with woom 2 models that were manufactured starting in March 2021.
For woom 2s manufactured before March 2021, FREEWHEEL KIT can be purchased here.
