SS freewheel advise

I have just bought a langster ss as my commute mountain bike has been stolen. Will I love it the drivetrain does not feel as smooth as my madone, I do not expect it too, but I would like to upgrade the freewheel, is there a 'quality' item that anyone can suggest? I do not know enough about ss parts to have an opinion was hoping someone like phil wood did them but they only do fixed wheel cogs

    White Industries is the daddy of freewheels - pricey at £65. The ACS are meant to be reasonably tough and more reasonable priced. The new Onza Tensile is mid-priced - currently building a SS C-X and will probably try one of those.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
  • Agreed, I have had 7 of these in various sizes over the last 3 years. The one on my commuter Langster needed a new bearing (easy rebuild) after 6,000 miles, other than that no problem ,which is great when in contrast to the total failure of a Shimano item at 1500 miles.
    Well worth it.
