I bought two 11-30 DNP's for our folders in 2017. They were $29.46 then. Up $10 in two years. Wow. One has a 52T chain ring, and the other is 46T. I need to upsize the latter.
Thanks for your feedback on the DNPs. I do hate spending that much money on a freewheel considering the price of the bike but I look at the “inexpensive-ness” of the bike warranting some investment to make it more practical.

Have you been happy with the quality of those freewheels? Seems so me people have been disappointed with quality...
