A freehub is a small, but important part that has been machined to house the ratcheting mechanism for your bicycle. Freehub's ratcheting mechanism is what allows you to engage and disengage your bicycle's gears. It is making it possible for you to change the speed at which you are pedaling.

Freehub for your bicycle

The freehub is used on bicycles to make the wheels spin. The freehub is a cassette-based ratcheting mechanism that helps you keep your bike running smoothly. It's the part of your bicycle that houses the sprockets that attach to the rear wheel, and it contains a ratcheting mechanism that allows you to choose how fast or slow you want to go. The faster you go, the harder it is to pedal.

Cassette and freewheel are the two common components of a bicycle drivetrain. They are both used to transmit power from the rider to the rear wheel. The cassette comprises from sprockets that fit onto a freehub and are held in place by lock rings, which are threaded on the freehub. The freehub is attached to the hub of your bike's rear axle, while the lock rings hold the cassette securely in place.

A ratcheting mechanism is used to engage and disengage gears on a bicycle. When you pedal, you're turning a chain ring that runs around this mechanism, which also has teeth on it. As you turn your pedals and move forward, your gear shifts automatically as well as when you stop pedaling or coast on downhills.
