    i would not bitch if no one updated anything. i could not give fewer fucks as long as it’s solid and functional. but maybe i am a curmudgeonly black sheep :twitch:

    I personally hope that the microspline standard dies.

    I just wish Shimano would have made the gaps on their 12spd slightly off Sram, for the funnies.

    Not gonna happen. In all likelihood hyperglide will probably eventually be phased out.

    dunno about regular hubs, but claimed 156g against the last iteration of the onyx hub.

    The long anticipated Onyx Vesper has landed. The signature Onyx Racing Products sprag clutch hub is now available in a lighter and more easily adaptable format. The Vesper inherits the performance focused DNA of its predecessor without compromise. Significant revisions and tweaks on both the front and rear hubs result in a weight saving of around 156g depending on the configuration.

    Gonna take a wait and see on reduced sprags and narrower contact patch.

    The rear hub represents only a 65g weight savings. Not insignificant, but the front represents 49g. You could probably find a different front hub that's even lighter. I wouldn't go sellin yer hubs for 65g. In total it's 114g for the 32h 6b boost weights claimed.
