    So here is the wheelset built up with ibis 742 rims and sapim cx-rays
    The hook adds a little weight...

    I'll make up for the added hub weight with e13 cassette

    If high POE hubs are your cup of tea, Project 321 has a new hub with 207 points of engagement but with the drag you would expect from an 18 point Shimano hub. I've got a set in our expo booth and after Sea Otter I'll build them up. They feel amazing in the hand that's for sure.

    The new project 321 have 216 poe -- sends tickles down my spine. cant wait to own a set!
    also, i feel that these new project 321 hubs have enough poe (216) and is light enough. i'd like to think that i prefer these to the much heavier onyx though i have owned neither.

    Big fan of Jake at project321...Had a sweet set of his hubs laced to enve rims...

    Alas, these were announced after I pulled the trigger on the onyx hubs...The hub engagement is super cool

    Snapped some phone pics of the sprague system at Frostbike.





    I can't speak to their performance, but they felt great in-hand and the owner was an interesting guy with a big machining business.

    so i had my first ride with these hubs this morning. you can really tell the difference climbing tech...REALLY

    also the silence is great

    i was coming off King hubs with my last build. Perhaps the difference would be subtler with I9 or the new Project321 hubs.

    but i guess it makes sense...so a 650B+ tire has circumference of ~2300mm...even 3* of engagement would mean 19.2mm of slop at the tire...that could easily be the difference in cleaning a section or not

    perhaps i am just smoking my own crack

    will the disc "mtb" range of onyx hubs fit 11s road cassette?

    Yes, the splined hubs are 11 speed, narrow and wide range cassette compatible.

    Follow up to this... with a more narrow range 11s (32t for example and not a mtb 40t) cassette would there be clearance for the extra large spokes available? (2.3mm at the head)

    They are fantastic...the engagement is noticeable when climbing...the silence is welcome when coasting

    The weights are for the new alloy freehub

    These are very cool hubs, but WOW, that's a lot of parts in there. I have a been a CK mtb hub user for over 20 years, they did me pretty good and I had no complaints. Sometimes the Kings would spin free in cold weather was my only gripe. I just got a new bike and went with DT 240's because of the center lock version and super easy maintenance. I swapped in the 54t upgrade and it does feel a bit slow since I rode Kings for so long. Looking forward to a long term review on these Onyx hubs!

    Been riding my Onyx/NOBL hubs now for the last month. All I can say is that silence is music to my ears, granted my other MTB wheels are I9 and the silence alone for me is worth it. I know some love the loud buzz but I have trouble with it. Even coming from I9 POE to these has been noticeable in the tech climbing bits, I'm not the smoothest in this climbing so having the instant engagement is awesome!
