For the curious.... The insides of the newer Tensile 96 click 18T Trials freewheel
(bearings, pawls, pawl-springs shared with the 60 click version).
-23 Ratchet points
-6 Pawls arranged in triple offset groups of synchronous pairs = 96 engagement points
-Double row open caged bearings (cup & cone)
-They are VERY LOUD, and due to the large amount of engagement points they sound much like a Chris King hub. A noisy bee like thats too noisy for me...
-Even when bedded in they are still very inefficient (the bearings must cut a channel through the painted white cups of the outer ring). They have the most drag of ANY freewheel i have ever hand-spun.
-However, they are STRONG, with VERY positive engagement due to strong pawl springs.
Why do we care? Quality built freewheels that feature double row bearings are few and far between. This design better handles angular loading when motor power is being transferred in the freewheeling state where unengaged pawls cant contribute to forming a rigid structure. Single bearing units like the Sickbikeparts/ENO suffer premature bearing failure from overhung loading caused by offset chainring/s.
The problem with integrating these into freewheeling chainring setups? There's no easily adaptable 5 bolt flange like the sickbikeparts freewheel. Mounting these to a freewheel adapter plate will in most cases require either bolting through the teeth or welding it to a chainring adapter plate. Drilling holes through the teeth themselves to attach bolts is only really possible with Carbide cutters and a rigid mill (case hardened steel).....other options include buggering around with ally on a CNC long enough...
