    36T DT Swiss Star Ratchet in Stainless

    Just an FYI to the clyde community: A forum member, skinner2909, started a Kickstarter project to gauge interest in 36T DT Swiss Star Ratchets machined from stainless steel! His original thread is here: DT Swiss 36T Star Ratchet Upgrade - $30 shipped!

    Background: I'm about 270lbs and do a fair amount of climbing. I have destroyed a lot of freehubs over the years. So far I haven't had any trouble with the 36T Aluminum DT ratchets, but I still carry a spare 18T set on longer rides. Switching these out to stainless would be an easy way to increase their reliability and at 1/3 the price of what DT Swiss wants for their aluminum ratchets now!

    I'm already in for a set, it would be really great to get these made up.
