    Onza Trials Freewheel

    Anyone had any contact with one of these bad boys? A search for Onza just revealed a few posts regaling the old days, but still nothing about a freewheel.

    I can only find one here
    http://www.benscycle.net/index.php?m...oducts_id=6604

    It has 60 teeth and 6 pawls, compared to the White Industries Trials freewheel with 72 teeth and 6 pawls. Just curious if they are any good, I'm not sure if those 12 extra teeth are worth the 25 extra dollars.

    Speaking of this; why are the higher end freewheels so loud? Is it intentional or a side effect of the nicer internals?

    may just be the number of pawls, teeth, and grease viscosity, but I'm guessing.

    at the same time, my Ultegra freehub is quiet and has become slightly more audible with time. I suppose the grease is breaking down and making it easier for the pawls to engage

    I presumed it was the number of pawls and teeth. When you coast there are more clicks per turn than a cheaper freewheel with fewer teeth and pawls.
