Field Test Review: 2024 Nicolai Nucleon 16 Supre - The Silent Plow
And why did they choose low torque clutches? Because of weight. So it's because of how the sprag clutch works that they had to make this compromise. What you said is like saying "the electric car has a lower range than the equivalent gas car not because it's electric, but because the designers chose to spec low watt-hour batteries on it". Technically you're correct, but at the core it's just a drawback of the technology that's being used in this application. Onyx has a much less spongy clutch in the classic hub, but it's heavier and not many riders bought them (at least in my area). I've been running the vesper for a couple years now and my next rear hub is going to be an onyx classic. The silence is so nice, and the additional weight will be worth it if it gets rid of the sponginess imo.

The chain wrap on this thing is great, and the chain damper (clutch) is speed sensitive, so I wouldn't expect any issues tbh

Is This the New Enduro? Specialized Patent Shows 170mm Bike With UBB Suspension Design
With the range the link drops below the chainring, but that doesn't seem to be the case here

28 Handlebar & Stem Setups of Enduro World Cup Riders
Yeah. We also need reach, stack, chainstay length, front center to rear center balance, ape index, shoulder width to make much of this. Get on it pinkbike. I expect more from these free articles.

Tested: Do Short Cranks Work For Tall Riders?
@RonSauce: I never said it was "inconsequential" or that "I couldn't feel it" (although the latter is true in this case, as I simultaneously dropped my BB height, so overall ended up lowrer overall). I just made the point that the difference in standing CoG is smaller than the difference in crank length.

Tire Choices & Pressures of 20 Pro Racers - Les Gets DH World Cup 2023
@Chondog94: please tell me you don't have top end suspension on your bike. Cause if you do, then all that extra money was wasted, because fancy suspension doesn't matter when your tire pressure is jacked anyways.
