The "E-type" is a common single-speed coaster brake on newer bikes. Surprisingly good quality compared to many other generic coaster brakes!

Shimano CB-E110 coaster brake

Should there be a spring in the clutch cone? There's one in mine that causes a lot of drag when pedaling.

Yep, it should definitely be there. If you have a lot of drag the grease you are using might be too sticky or you might have your outer cones a bit too tight... this style of coaster always has some though!

Should the spring slip inside the clutch cone, or around the 2 pronged thing that locks into the brake cone? In other words,should the spring rotate when pedaling? Should the large end of the spring be in the clutch cone, or facing the brake cone? Is there any kind of bearing that the spring ride on?
Thanks, Marty

no bearing

Nope, it pretty much stays in place and doesn't have any pressure when riding, its job is to disengage the brake when you start riding.

The 2 pronged thing that locks into the brake cone stays still, because it's locked into the brake cone, which dosn't rotate. The clutch cone rotates during pedaling with the driver, so the spring would have to slip on one end or the other. The one in mine is very tight, causing friction & noise. What should give?
Thanks, Marty

Yep

Right, you are correct (had to think about it for a bit)... That's just how they work - they are tight, they definitely have drag. I THINK the spring slips inside the clutch cone if I remember correctly.

I have worked on one of that type that had noise when it was coasting - kind of a whining noise. Is that what you are hearing? In the case of the one I was working on after finding a happy medium with the driver cone adjustment and riding on it for a bit it seemed to quiet up.

I mostly have vintage coasters these days. Bendix / Sachs / New Departure have a totally different clutch design that doesn't have that spring.

It's just when pedaling, kind of a grinding noise, maybe the spring slipping & catching like a violin bow, or possibly the clutch cone dragging on the brake shoes.
 Thanks

I took the assembly apart to clean it, but when I put it back together, There is no spring tension on the shifter pin, there seems to be something missing in the shaft where the pin sits.

I have similar noise

I had similar noise in the Clutch Cone Unit. I decompiled it. It have 3 elements - body, spring and shim. After cleaning and greasing, the spring noise dissapeared.

Question on Shimano CB-E110 Single Speed Coaster

Avatar Posted by willy at Aug 06, 2013 07:19 AM
Hi, hope you can help. I have this hub on my Dahon Mu Uno. The gearing's a bit too low for me (with 16T cog) and I would like to put a 14T on. The Shimano schematic lists a 14T available. Can I use a Sturmey Archer 3-pronged 14T cog such as this one (http://www.jensonusa.com/[…]/Sturmey-Archer-Coaster-Brake-Cog). Thanks for your help.

Yep

Avatar Posted by Bryn at Aug 06, 2013 07:19 AM
Yes, all the "3-prong" cogs are essentially the same. The Sturmey ones will fit just fine. :)

Another question. . .

Do you know what size bearings this hub uses? Thanks!

Do they make longer axles for Pegs, if so how long recommend.and where can I find

Bike Shop

The axles are pretty straightforward, it's just a straight threaded axle. Any BMX shop should be able to help you out.
