Sachs 6 sp freewheel questionPopeye
Jul 20, 2001 3:57 PM
I've got a late '80's Santana tandem with 6 speed Shimano indexed downtube shifters & 6 speed Shimano SIS freewheel (threaded, not a cassette). The freewheel's ready for replacement & Shimano freewheels are scarce. Are the Sachs 6 speed freewheels compatible with SIS 6 speed spacing or will I have to operate in friction mode? How about the Sachs 7 speeds? I've got a set of 7 speed SIS levers I could use if it's compatible.
yes, they are. nmRusty McNasty
