Onyx RCR review

I got to test our Lester's Onyx RCR this past weekend and did a review of what I thought about it. Overall I like the bike, it's well built. Here is a link to the blog post if your interested.

ONYX RCR REVIEW

Re: Onyx RCR review

Sweet! ~$4000 though...out of my price range unfortunately. Also, is that a tomos seat?

Its a replica of a tomos seat. Better fabric and foam in my opinion.

Re: Onyx RCR review

couldn't find the right link but that front brake looks like it's only barely hitting to outermost edge of the rotor

Yeah I saw that complaint from a customer on the ONYX facebook page

Re: Onyx RCR review

I see what you mean.

Re: Onyx RCR review

How can that^ be good ?

Re: Onyx RCR review

Maybe because they are new, but the brakes do work well. But I can also see how this could be concerning to see just part of the surface area being used.

Re: Onyx RCR review

I really like these! Id prefer them in the step through iteration, but at 4g Im not the market they are selling to anyhow

If they could get them under 2g Id gladly take a loan to get one

Re: Onyx RCR review

^ This for sure.

Re: Onyx RCR review

It also leaves the tops of the pads unworn and creates a ridge and then it's all bad. The caliper is just improperly spaced on the forks for the rotor

Re: Onyx RCR review

Agreed.

Something funky going on.

Pads too small, caliper not deep enough. Something.

Same funky shit on other side too:

Re: Onyx RCR review

I bet you could close to build it for $2k.

The motor and controllers with a readout, probably 700 laced in. EBR's and a front disk setup 350 battery around a grand, I guess you're looking new tires, frame modifications building the box to be neat and clean, all the lighting stuff. yea maybe 3k. batteries man, that's the real cost killer. rest of it's easy

I was doing a cost break down on the parts. It would still be pricy to build but I think it could be DIY for about half give or take.
