    Not sure if it is the Onza one rebranded or not. The one I tried was a Tensile model. Came from J&B Importers which distributes Origin 8 stuff. If it is that one, it isn't sealed worth a hoot. One wet ride and it froze up solid with rust on me. Nothing any of my ACS Claws freewheels wouldn't have lived through.

    Was not impressed at all.

    Just looked at the J&B site and they don't even have an Origin 8 fw listed. They were probably Dicta which are junk.

    It doesn't look like a Dicta and its not the Tensil. They say it has 6 prawls. Maybe something new?

    The Tensile was a six pawl design as well. I wouldn't be at all surprised if they are one in the same.
