I want a loud rear hub that sounds like the Chris King and/or Hope Pro 2.

It needs to be 130mm for the Salsa Chilli con Grosso.

Any suggestions?


ps. Yes i just like the ra-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta sound the Hope hubs make..

thanks

Although the wheelset is ungodly heavy, the Fulcrum Racing 7's that came stock on my road bike were just annoyingly loud... Might want to check those out...

get a DT Swiss 240 hub, and change out the star ratchet to the newer 36 point.

Sweet, sweet music...and DT Swiss love, it's all good

Hope Pro IIs have been bombproof reliable for the last 6 years or so on my mountain bike, and they see way harsher conditions than any road bike reasonably should. If the Pro 3 is anything like it (and it looks like it is) it should be incredibly reliable and nice and noisy.

Yeah, nobody makes a louder hub than Campy. I've got 3 to prove it.

I haven't studied the Fulcrum lineup that much, so I couldn't say when "Record" kicks in. @Racing 1 or lower in the hierarchy?

ok, I gotta know...

WHY do you want a noisyass hub?

one of the things I like best about my bike is that it's totally silent.

please elaborate...

On the Cross course i noticed the RRRR-tata--ta-ta-t- sound makes my oponenents nervous as they hear you coming. And as a kid i used to put baseball cards on the spokes. Its just one of my neurosis!
