What is a cassette?
The cassette (also known as the rear sprocket) is the set of gears at the rear of your bike, connected to the rear wheel's hub. Single-speed bikes only have one rear cog, while multi-speed bikes have a cluster of cogs. This cluster can be either a cassette or a freewheel.
What is the difference between a freewheel and a cassette?
It references how the cogs (or gears) are attached to the hub. They are either secured by a cassette hub/freehub or a freewheel. Although they have the same function and look almost identical, they are mechanically different. The main difference between the two is that a freewheel is a single unit. The act of pedaling tightens the freewheel to the hub. The cassette is held in place by a lock ring. It is made of a cassette hub with a set of gears that slide onto it. Typical freewheels range between 5 and 7-speed, while cassettes range between 9 and 11-speed.
What is a FreeHub?
FreeHub is responsible for allowing the bike to coast. Shimano developed the first commercial cassette hub in 1978, and FreeHub is one of its registered trademarks.
