    It feels heavier than it really is because the weight is so dense/concentrated. Compact a full derailleur and cassette (plus the extra chain) into a little hub shell and that would feel heavy too.

    still much heavier than the original SA AW. Hope that go fast 8th gear doesn't wear out the brakes!

    If it wears out the brakes, you could always switch to using an actual boat anchor to stop
