if you look up wheel videos on youtube you'll see a lot of people with loud hubs.

think cause the construction is different from shimano hubs is why it makes more noise.

I dont like loud bikes.

Im not sure if putting more grease in it is a good idea. As it might gum up the parts.

The Zonda freehub is a lot like Hope's (three pawls), except that you open them up with a pair of 5mm hex wrenches and a smaller one (2.5mm, I think) for the lock nut.

Great - I have noisy wheels on my Bianchi and didn't realise it - must be going deaf :evil:

Actually there is a slightly louder click on the Zondas than on my spare (old) Campag Omega wheels, but they remain sexy as hell IMHO :lol:
