OK, so I notice the new Performance catalogue (the one that finds me twice a month with the correct address, unlike their orders) has SUNTOUR freewheels for sale instead of the normal Sachs-SRAM. What gives? Is Sachs out of the freewheel business? Are these 'poseur' Suntour from the poseur company (SR-Suntour) that inherited Suntor's same? OR did Performance discover a huge forgotten warehouse full of NOS Suntour New Winner freewheels somewhere?

I would call and ask Performncae myself, but their phone people are incapable of answering questions.

i saw that in their cataloue as well and wondered if the world was an altogther more beautifull place as they are getting hard to find in wider sizes.

i kinda think its some cruel mistake or preformances' behalf.

let us know if you try and its for real.

if they bought alot of old stock from someone and are cashing in on it. Alot of TCN countries still use the retro stuff that is the standard parts, they're cheap parts. I just bought a freewheel about 2 weeks ago that is a new hyperglide 6 speed 28-14 so now I have a Suntour 24-13 and the hyperglide.
