They don't like impacts, either structurally or magnetically. Other downside is that magnetic force falls off very quickly with distance, so in effect they're a non linear spring, in this case they'll have less force when engaged, than when the teeth are riding over each other. If it were worth doing to reduce rolling resistance, shimano or some other major manufacturer would have done it.

I know I'm basically talking to myself here, but on the off chance someone who rides BMX stumbles across this site one day, what's the opinion on the clutch?
Is it significantly better than the rest of the khe type coasters in terms of feel and engagement/mechanical reliability?

This Ezra freecoasting pawls shit all seems like witchcraft, I can't really find any opinions on it, so assume they suck?

is this caused by the missing pawl and spring?

Definitely, they're 3 pawl hubs right? There will be all sorts of horrible things going on in there, i'd guess the driver will be grinding on the ratchet ring.

Got myself a decent 26in jump bike after christmas, despite 20 something years of trying I've never been particularly comfortable on my bmx in the air, this is rad as hell though, can confidently huck it all over with little regard to landing with any finesse. Been riding the local indoor parks a few times a week recently, off to finale ligure in italy next week on the proper mtbs too, should be good.

Use a quality set of long handled allen keys, work up from 5mm.

If it flexes as much as they show it moving, i bet your wheels would be all over the place, rubbing chainstays, forks, etc? Seems a horrible idea when flex can so easily be engineered into a carbon frame?

Does look cool though...

If they're updated, they're probably 3mm wider to accomodate bikes with boost axle spacing, using a spacer behind the cup, rather than them having to change the design of the spider to push the chainring out the required amount?

Regular Columbo here.

Has it been 10yrs since it was first shown, probably i'd guess? Will have lapsed by now if so.

Fox stuff has always fallen to bits for me, best shorts ive had were altura attacks, they're all black, pretty light weight, good fit and completely waterproof as a bonus too. I had them for about 2yrs as my only shorts and they actually stayed waterproof until i wore out the arse.

Hard to knock the twoi ree aliexpress knock offs if you're on a budget, they're probably same quality as the proper ones...

The Bike Shop / Re: Need a super strong front disc hub.
« on: October 31, 2016, 01:22:20 AM »
They're dirt cheap over here, though may not be in the land of the free, but the old hope big'un hubs were a cool design, used bigger bearings , took a 20mm axle, came in 36 hole and build strong. They use a bespoke 5 bolt mount, but you can still get the rotors from hope, or just laser cut your own (bigger?) ones.

Im no expert, but id guess most of the braking comes from the wind resistance, dragging the tail skid, etc? I would have thought 2x 200mm rotors with decent brakes and metal pads would be fine, the pads will get hot, but they wont be working for long enough for the heat to transfer into the caliper and oil.
