Super stoked to finally get my hands on my new groupset. It's an Acros A-ge 1x11 hydraulic groupset. It was only sold for a short amount of time and I don't think many were sold. Weight without hydraulic fluids is 305 grams.
Never heard of them before, I'll be interested top know how well it works, does it have a clutch?
According to bikerumor: "It also gets a elastomer damping system inside the pulley cage pivot to keep the chain from bouncing. Not exactly a clutch, but same idea. The wound spring that’s visible here is the tension spring."
Shame that Acros couldn’t make this work commercially*, it looks neat. Seems like the cost was something like $2300 about 10 years ago for the 2x11 setup. Front derailleur currently available on Amazon for $1511.99
Stil haven't gotten round to fitting the Acros groupset unfortunately. I did manage to setup the new wheels tubeless. It required a huge compressor and a lot of vaseline, but in the end I got it done. I used fatty stripper tape on one wheel and Stans Tesa tape on the other, to see which will work best.
I also added a bike to my stable. At the moment I only use it to bring the kids to school, but I am hoping to do some bigger tours on it in spring / summer.
