Sounds promising....boostjuice wrote:I've just recieved one of the Recently released ACS 'Crossfire' series freewheels in 22T to try out next in place of the failed Dicta. Being CNC mill/laser cut, they are a HUGE step up in quality from the old largely stamped Dicta and ACS 'Claws' line (another i was considering). They feature a quality finish, 3 synchronously engaging pawls just like the ENO, offer very low overrunning resistance, are reasonably quiet, and feature twin angular contact bearings with minuscule lateral freeplay. If the ratchets are rotary/laser cut like an ENO, rather than being broach stamped such as in the 'Claws' line (and all Dicta's I might add), then there is a good chance that the parent metallurgy is stronger as it can be of a harder material before broaching and subsequent case hardening.

Attached below, not necessarily in the same order they used to be:
