I think you win the comments section for today. I’m going to take you at your word on your math, but I do think you’ve made a few sweeping assumptions. Still, impressed that you went to those lengths - for science! Your arguments make me feel like I should try an O-Chain for real world comparisons. It would have to be a large gain in performance for me to accept the added cost/weight/maintenance of a component like that. The point I tried to make in my article is that the freehub body is absolutely the low hanging fruit. I’m curious if you’ve been able to do a back-to-back comparison of freehub bodies yourself? If not, you should give it a try. It’s hard to sell something that is low-tech and doesn’t make anyone any money. It works well for me, so if it gets a few people out there thinking and trying new things, then great!
