    ACS 20T w/ Surly New Disc

    I seem to recall hearing somewhere that to use the ACS Claws 20T with Surly New Disc you need to remove of the freewheels' dust cover, does this sound familiaror logical to anybody?

    ACS FWs do not have dust covers.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    I used to glide silently...

    but I just went from a 18t shizmano to a 20t ACS and now the wildlife (of NYC )
    hear me comming a mile away. If you work out how to make the thing run silent let
    me know, it's my only gripe.

    I've heard (caveat) there are 4 small holes on the back side of the ACS... one might use a needle fitting on a grease-gun to inject some graphite or Mobil-1........ Haven;t tried it yet myself, I can live with the noise

    Upset Justa rant

    Just recently purchased a 20 tooth ACS for my Surly commuter, and that thing just sucked.

    I've ran 'em before, and did my normal soakin' and spinnin' in Mobil One before the install.....it then locked right up, and when it did spin, was noisier and cluttery'er than all get out.

    Took it back to the shop and purchased another ENO. I'm happy.

    I've now three ENO freewheels on three bikes, in spite of the cash outlay. They just work flawlessly. Absolutely flawlessly.

    I'll go to my grave with an ENO freewheel suspended on a PC7-X around my neck.
