Noisier usually means better because it means that they are machined better and have more engagement points (both very good things). There is a silent hub on the market... I'll see if I can dig it up for you. You can make most hubs silent by packing them full of heavy grease.

thanks,

oh and i overhauled my hubs a while back and they became silent and i didnt know why. so im guessing i packed too much grease into them. but thats ok, i like the silence.

No such thing as too much grease unless you're getting a ton of drag!

I'm actually building a wheel up on one of those hubs tomorrow, there super sick, they have instant engagement which is great for slalom and trials, the only downside is the weight, like 580 grams for the rear hub

Hope Pro 2's. Industry 9's. Chris King. Hadley. I'd get Hopes, cost about half the price of the others. I'd get Industry 9's though if given the choice out of any of them for free.

I find Most of the high end hubs are pretty noisy.

Noisy: Chris King, Hopes, Industry 9
Quiet: DT Swiss, Shimano, Mavic

You can listen to the CK hubs on youtube along with most of the other hubs.

I prefer silent hubs, noisy ones get annoying imo, if i want my wheel to be loud, ill just ducktape a pokemon card to my chainstay Razz

i vaguely remember my first bike (iron horse mt400 when i was 11 or 12 having a "silent clutch" rear hub. this was 12 years ago so i have no idea what it was or if it was any good.
