Hi, could someone tell me if there is a list of knocking rear hub noise?
I am willing to buy a new whellsets on internet (practically no way to check directly the rear hub knocking) and I whant to avoid to choose a rear hub noise system.
Thank you for your information

    Hi Fastwheel

    I'm not exactly sure what you're problem is, could you try describing it a little more clearly.

    Thank you for your reply
    there are some wheelset, like Xero xr1, Campy wheelsets that the rear hub knocking (jingling) others like Mavic ksyrium don't produce this noise during free turn.
    So, I looking for a list that devide the two systems of wheel maker, with knocking and without knocking rumour.

    I think he means that when he is coasting he doesn't want the continuous ticking noise.

    Although there are degrees of noise, some bikes used to be horrendous whereas others are satisfactorily quiet.
