Question about K2 Cycling
I assume you means that it slips sometimes. This is usually due to the ratchet mechanism just needing a bit of lube. If you have a thread-on type freewheel (see image below) then you can usually just squirt some WD40 into the little holes near the center of the freewheel. Those holes would be facing the table in the threaded freewheel pictured below. If that doesn't work for you, it's not all that difficult or expensive to just replace the whole freewheel. However, if you have the splined type pictured on the right, the ratchet mechanism is in the wheel's hub, making replacement more of a big deal. WD-40 would probably do the trick on this type too, but I never had one some I'm not certain how easy it is to get the lube where you need it. Good luck!
