    Since Sachs appear to have stopped making freewheels altogether, the availablity of decent
    freewheels seems to have dried up, including the cog boards for Sachs freewheels.

    Does anyone know of a 13-28 freewheel source, almost any make considered?

    I know Shimano do a 14-28, but would prefer a 13-28 for our tandem. The Bandits of Bridgewater have
    a few grossly overpriced freewheels listed, which is pushing me to build a new wheel instead and use
    a cassette, etc.

    Parker International still have some Sachs stuff available, at more realistic prices than SJS.
    Byercycles is another option - they seem to have Sachs offers in CW from time to time.
