Zee clutch rear mechs
Look like start of July, nice and cheap for you people with incorrect 1x10 gearing, can flog your expensive chain devices as well and replace with one of these and just a cheap top guide
Just a budget saint isnt it ?
Think I'll stick with the x0 :K)
Point being it has the clutch to stop most chain slap.....Sram coming out with their own similar thing though
I was reading something somewhere, maybe a video or even a conversation a while ago about how the clutch raises it's own issues. Without one the mech spring absorbs a lot of energy which doesn't get absorbed when the mech hardly moves, the result being that the mech needs to be stronger to cope with the energy which isn't being absorbed by the spring. This obviously will apply not just to the cage, but the bolts, bushings and bearings in the wheels. I'd be interested to know if there is anyone on here who owns one of these new silent mechs and how you're getting on with it.
Wearing our wheel bearings more?  :Smile   I dont recall reading reports of premature wheel bearing failures by SS riders or those with Alfines etc?!

Although as it seems bike component companies only test their products for 3 hours, who knows... (although to be fair drivetrains work quite well, seatposts however....)
Just to be clear I mean chain wheels not rear wheel.
I'm thinking of going 1x10 on the kona and getting this.

it Maybe a silly question but does anyone know if any of these "clutch" rear mechs could be made to work with 9 speed??
