Everyone has their priorities. Weight ranks high on my list. Trail bikes have ballooned so much (usually for good reasons; I'm not giving up my dropper) that it's not unusual to find models north of $5K that crest 30 pounds. Adding nearly half a pound to the rear hub alone is, to me, no small compromise. I think the Onyx hub is brilliant, but I'll satisfice with "good enough" engagement to save 200g.  Do you notice any flex after engagement? Some folks have posted videos showing a surprising amount of crank movement without corresponding wheel rotation.
