yes sir it is. regular hadleys have 36, and they made a special offset trials version that puts a slight offset in each pawl, so its got 108 clicks. its like 3.3 degrees each click or something i dont remember but its insanely fast.
The mammoth rim is very inexpensive, but I rode mine for over a year and only had to true it once when my derailleur got caught in my spokes while i was riding along and nearly flipped me over the bars.
It's a good rim, it's just too narrow for trials in my opinion. You'll do just fine on it I'm sure, but the tire will be MUCH more prone to fold than on a try-all rim, or dx32.
has anyone seen the inside of a hadley hub? they arent exactly poop... burly but it would still be ncie to have something engage a little more than one at a time.
when will peeps realize that king is light, reliable, affordable (relative). all these other hubs that are supposedly trials oriented dont have the three aspects king has. they are a combination of less dependable, more expensive, and/or heavier.
on the other hand- hadley is a good company and will likely back up any issues you may ever encounter.
hadley said that the 3 pawl thing was plenty strong enough..but if worst comes to worst and it does blow up i can just get a regular freewheel with the 3 at once. but i figure its better than an xt so i dont mind too much.
right now im just riding a GT aggressor with an exr fork, but hopefully ill have a new frame soon. I dont know if it means much or if anyone else uses it but the wheel is 36h...does that qualify as laced up right?
while im here..is the monty 219 with maguras worth the buy as a first mod? i can get it for $410 off of webcyclery..
Check that out little android man... I ride with ty, so I know he will send it out and I'm sure you can get it for a good price. It is in great shape, ty is a sport rider and doesn't go big or put much stress on his ride....plus its the same mod that I started out on (mine was an earlier model), and look at me now!
