My experience is the bearings are sealed up well so there is a break in period for that. As for the sprags, they don't touch while coasting so there's no break in period. That's the beauty of the design. The rear spins as freely as the front. I believe Onyx was confirmed via a third party to have the lowest resistance of any hub. Between low drag, silence, and a "soft" instant engagement, Onyx hubs ride like nothing else. When I say "soft" it's something you have to experience to appreciate. The Sprags engage instantly, but there's probably 1 degree or more of a soft feel as the sprags tighten their bite. This creates a soft feel that almost spring loads you forward too. It's very different than anything else I've tried. I've heard this engagement style can prolong your drivetrain because you can't create a harsh transition from coasting to power. I've owned king, i9, hope...... Onyx has made something special that's in a league above everything I've tired.

I reckon this was the wrong metric. If he'd compared 2kg on the bike to 2kg on his body then I would have been interested in the times.

Spomer, thank you for always having my back!

The story is, I haven't had a bike sponsor for about 3 years. When budgets cuts hit Specialized marketing in 2013, my AllRide tour and Allride Jr development got dropped. I was super bummed but wanted to stay on the brand so I got a frame...more

New technology always does not mean better or necessary.... You have to opportunity to buy a new e-bikes too, but do you really want them only because they are new? Our bikes are definitions of Freeride bikes for us and that is what we love to ride mostly, that's it, nothing more or less

There was no page 2, they didn't say which frames. But in a nutshell, there won't be many candidates, mainly because 51-mm offset is not going to feel very good on regular 650b wheels, unless you happen to be running a 62 degree HA, which most 6" travel frames won't....more
