[quote=Recumbentist][quote=motorbacon][quote=Recumbentist]My information comes from a well-known frame/wheelbuilder…someone who they would presumably want to be associated with. He says they are tough to order from by any means.
I’m going to make the effort to get some, but it sounds like some of you have actually ridden them? How are they? Has anyone tried them on a road biek?[/quote]
Have this ‘builder’ aka Rob English call them. If not, I’ll call them for you.
They are worth buying. The bearing quality and overall build quality puts all of the MUSA brands to shame. The engagement is instant and somewhat ‘soft’ in feel because you’re accustomed to a hard engagement of a pawl/ratchet mechanism.
Here’s a quick video comparing a ‘fast hub’ with the Onyx. The Onyx simply doesn’t slow down due to drag and having ridden the bike in the parking lot it’s noticeable.
No, not Rob. But you do realize that I didn’t use a name deliberately, right?[/quote]
Yep. Just tired of the bike industry today.
