Got flows/hopes on my fs and have to say the freehub isn't that loud.

The way people go on I was dreading riding with them for the first time but either I have a quiet freehub or some people have more sensitive hearing than me.

If you don't, you'll keep looking at the "other" option you've fitted and regret buying them.


+1. This.

Voted for Scheksie.

Well in the end I managed to bag a set of used (only about 7 times!) Hope Pro 2 Evo hubs on Stans ZTR Crest rims for 180 squid. Look brand new they do and a huge saving, meaning I can get the project finished earlier! XT groupset may be on order this week me thinks!

So far so good, not done much really the only thing I've done that I hadn't done before Is fit a headset, which wasn't too hard! Even without a headset press!

The real test will be when the group set arrives I suppose.
