No joke, I prefer higher bottom brackets. Bikes these days are so low, I typically run them in the higher of the two settings. That way I can run 175's without clipping pedals, and pedal hard anytime I want to. The higher BB doesn't bug me on rough bits or cornering, and...more

Not going to call anyone out here, but the rim strip was brought to market via Maxxis in the late 90's. That's how we ran tubeless back in the day when racing the NORBA Nationals. The setup every Pro was running was Michelin Tires and the Maxxis Rim Strip. Maxxis also claimed...more

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.
