Re: Acs paws hd freewheel

its about half the cost of a white industries and since you can get away with a dicta it seems like a good middle ground probably.

Re: Acs paws hd freewheel

using one for about a month now, nicely built, not too loud, not too silent , about rigth when it comes to the noise dept, overall it seems
"good" for the price paid , will keep observing how it performs but i think i will buy more as my "go to" freewheel for those bikes i cant justify procuring a white's

Good info thanks. Sometime when your riding with friends and trying to talk the whites are a little loud

Re: Acs paws hd freewheel

Checking in for a ACS PAWS HD performance report, thinking about buying one, how is it going for those who have been running it?

Re: Acs paws hd freewheel

I haven't used that one yet. I found one from origin 8 that has 108 points of engagement. It's pretty loud though. Found all over for $34.

Re: Acs paws hd freewheel

I'm surprised so few people are using these, considering how popular the ACS Crossfire was for a long period of time, because this PAWS HD model is the revised and improved heavy-duty version of the Crossfire, so I find it odd that it fell out of flavor.

Re: Acs paws hd freewheel

I really wanted this relationship to work out, but cancelled the first date, then quickly committed to White Industries on the rebound, its a done deal and I will be singing the dual-harmony clicking-song loudly, all summer long!

I just don't get it?? back in the day when your freewheel started making noise . IE was no longer quiet. that's when you new it was Fed up and needed to be replaced.

Re: Acs paws hd freewheel

Sound doesnt really interest me. Im looking for a blend of quality and value. I can do better than a dicta but i dont have profile pockets. The white is a nice medium and i have a feeling just from pics that the acs doesnt match up. For one thing the white is made in usa and i will pay for that any time i can

Re: Acs paws hd freewheel

I have found the Halo Clickster to be the best middle ground freewheel I have used. I have 2 I've been riding on a year now, solid no issues. They also have a great loud sound.


Looking for another set of Tioga Monoblock pedals.

lol

I hate noisy freewheels I really do. I feel like such a helmet when I ride on modern wheels. Such is the price for sealed bearings though *sigh*

The current lower end ACS freewheels are made in India, probably the same factory where Dictas are made.
