Slack Randoms: An Enclosed Gearbox Drivetrain, A Walkie Talkie Helmet & More
People always say Australia has scary snakes and spiders but magpie's are definitely the worst animal we've got. They have even caused the death of a road cyclist and a young baby in the last few years.

Williams Racing Products Release New CentreHub Decoupling Spider
@Worley1: Yes the chain is constantly spinning just like a regular freehub on a bike is constantly spinning. Pedal kickback occurs when the suspension moves fast under an impact causing chain growth which pulls the chain backwards. This is obviously the opposite direction to the way the drivetrain is spinning with this device and will just engage the sprag clutch bearing, thus transferring the force into the cranks and giving you pedal kickback. Ochain works by allowing the chainring to rotate backwards by 6-12 degrees, negating pedal kickback with the downside of slightly worse engagement. Long story short, this doesn't negate pedal kickback as pedal kickback affects it for the same reason it affects a freehub as that's essentially what this is. A relocated freehub.

Williams Racing Products Release New CentreHub Decoupling Spider
@norcaljedi: O-chain is a chainring not a cassette, its almost like its in the name. Looks like you should have done some research before commenting. This system, with a constantly rotating drivetrain, 100% has more drag than a O-chain or any conventional drivetrain with a freehub.

@Danzzz88: I think you will find that you're the one completely wrong. This is just a crank mounted free hub with instant engagement. For the crank to instantly engage when pedaling there's no way for it to rotate backwards. It literally says in the article "one way bearing" meaning it only rotates forwards when the bikes rolling without pedalling, not backwards like you have somehow deduced.

Field Test: 5 Enduro Bikes (and 1 eMTB) Face the Efficiency Test
@islandforlife: the bikes would likely pedal completely different to normally, the location of the chain force has a huge effect on the rear suspension and how a bike pedals

The craziest thing is that all these complaints don't matter to specialized as these bikes sold out within the first few days. The reason its so overpriced is because they still manage to sell.
