    ACS Endurance f/w

    Has anyone tried or inspected one of the ACS Endurance 1/8" freewheels?
    Is it the same mechanism as the 3/32" F/W?

    Might get a longer life out of the thicker teeth if you're running a 1/8" chain.

    thanks

    I have never come close to wearing out the teeth on an ACS. The pawls/ratchet fail long before that.

    I use 1/8" chains on 3/32" FWs (and rings) with no issues.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    thanks - I know the teeth on the 3/32" are long-lasting... anyone know if the pawls/ratchet are any different on the 1/8" model?
