Thread: Spinergy LX flex

    Spinergy LX flex

    I was told that the LXs have quite a bit of flex back and forth when they are locked at the hub as with the D's locks and the ADI brakes.

    Does anyone know how bad it is?

    Yes, there is some flex with the LX (12 spokes) but not much more than with my 18 spokes Spinergy. It's really not a problem.

    Never, even though I sometimes do push-ups on the pushrims putting all my weight in flexing the spokes (meaning the wheel is pushed forward but retained in place at the hub).

    cool, im going on your judgement on these. i ordered them yesterday and had them drop shipped to colours. im just so fucking sick of conventional brakes. i keep mine so tight that im always tearing my hands up setting the scissors[sp].
    thx for your input
