The Colony BMX Swarm Pintour Freecoaster wheel is built using a Colony Pintour double-wall rim, laced 3X with black 14G spokes and black brass nipples, to a Colony Swarm planetary freecoaster hub. Right hand Drive.

The Colony Swarm Freecoaster hub is Colony's entry into the new world of Planetary-style freecoaster hubs. Utilizing Free Night's patented design, the Swarm features a planetary clutch system that allows the benefits of both cassettes and freecoasters. When rolling forward, the hub feels just like a normal cassette. Quick engagement from the pawls gives a nice, positive feel when pedaling. But as soon as the wheel rolls backwards, the clutch system disengages the pawls and you're in freecoaster mode, with infinite slack so long as your pedal speed does not exceed the wheel speed. Once rolling forward again, you're back in cassette mode. Another benefit of this design is that axial forces are greatly reduced which permits the use of standard sized bearings, making the weight of this hub more in line with that of a cassette. Colony even includes nylon hub guards for both drive and non-drive sides to help protect your new investment. 

Note: Planetary freecoasters are designed to be run dry. If disassembled do not add any grease or lubricant to the internals of this hub.

Colony Swarm Pintour Freecoaster Wheel (Black) (RHD) (20 x 1.75)
Develops a squeak I don't have a warranty. I am going to try and use dry lube on the o-ring like the video says I think it should not need to be done considering the amount ive spent on the wheel.

Otherwise it works still although the terrible squeak

Colony Swarm Pintour Freecoaster Wheel (Black) (RHD) (20 x 1.75)
Great wheel has super tight slack and sounds like a cassette not super loud but it does tick. Other than the cone nut being tighten down too hard and squeaking after one day of riding. It has to be taken apart and dry lubed. The cranks started spinning and not catching but after I tightening up my axle bolts from grinding it stopped.
