    dicta freewheel anyone?

    hey everyone.

    so i am one of those guys that sees nothing wrong with the good old ACS freewheel.

    that said after some abuse one of the three i own is pretty beat.

    i saw a really good deal on a dicta freewheel and was wondering if anyone has had any experiences with them?

    for the price, i am not expecting anything great just wondering if it is similar in quality to an ACS.

    much lower quality in my experience. Wade at vulture made a cool set of spurs out of a couple though...

    They suck. Damn near impossible to remove as well. Spend your money on something nicer and save your sanity.

    As a former bike shop guy, I must agree that the Dictas should bypass the bike on the way to spur land. They do look damn fine on Wade's boots, which (the boots) look even better since they got branded. When I had my shop, we ended up buying Shimano or ACS freewhwwls whenever we could abtain them. Dictas were the last choice.... Brandmaster_T

    They're bad (because of their poor seals and difficult removal) and I'd never recommend them.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
