New Tensile Freewheel Project

Finally, no more raping crank threads. Just needs some decent cartridge bearings and it'd be perfect.

Any plans of making a fixed hub with the spline on? Also what's the OD of the male spline?

The lockring's on the back of the freewheel so it shouldn't really be able to come loose. The main freewheel itself looks similar to most 108.9s, and it's never really been a problem with them.

I didn't make myself clear enough. I meant the one that would hold the freewheel/adapter (hint, hint) onto the crank arm.

It'll be under no load though, and you can just pop a dab on threadlock on there. Having the recess for the circlip will add a few mm to the overall depth, which is pretty crucial in that area.

Please don't do an Ashton on us and string us along forever before actually releasing these! I'm gonna need a new drivetrain in the not-too-distant future, and your 96 click has been so good to me I'd be highly inclined to go with this rather than Trialtechs and an SL.

I did not think of that.

Any chance of a proper six sided nut or something like as a lockring, instead of that silly two-hole, do it up with a pin spanner afair.

Space again :(

orrrhhh...

Just my luck with lockrings isn't so hot so I'd love to see a different system.

What about replacing the lockring all together with somthing like an R clip (A big 'un). That could then be faced so it was flush to the end of the crank.

EDIT: The guy who said to put cartridge bearings like an eno in the freewheel also makes a good point...

What about using the truvativ BB interface for it?

That might work, right?

if i were to invest in such a dedicated set up i'd expect sealed bearings in the freewheel and to be able to order every single part of it...

the perfect tool for this would have to be a saint centrelock tool as far as it being the right size for the job. just a bit larger than the hg tool

TLLR20_dzt.jpg?width=480&height=480

how well is the lockring holding out to side loads on the bash ring?

and will there be a 150ish option for mod bikes

the only downside appears to be that you are then stuck for crank choice. If you managed to get some other companies on board for creating a standard spline interface then it would be a real big win for trials riders.

Someone's got to go first. I guess Onza don't want it to be them.

The current issue is with the new 108 click freewheel. I was testing the screw-on version and it blew up in around 3 rides.

I like your signature.

The 96 click one works fine. They should keep working on this sensible crank idea that many riders have suggested as something they want to see, rather than dangling it in front of our faces and saying, 'this is what we could make, but we won't.'

You don't know that for sure, he didn't specify what year the summer would be in :) ....
