I notice the sensation you are talking about with the Onyx (sprag clutch) - if I want to - but not with the True Precision Stealth (roller clutch). I know two people who have tried both and say the same.
I know a surprising (to me) number of Onyx owners (Nobl wheel spec mainly) who say they don’t notice it and LOVE the hubs. I know of at least two guys who sold their wheels on because it drove them nuts. Weird human stuff right?
Totally get what you’re saying re. Bike weight. Happened to have a naked True Precision / Race Face Arc 30 in my hand the other day vs a naked Industry Nine rear on a carbon Reynolds rim and it’s a huge difference. I don’t care vs silent/instant on my SS but I can appreciate why many riders do.
