Click or whirr?

Fulcrum hubs have a very similar freewheel mechanism to Hope if you want to do it on the cheap.

If whirr is OK and money no object, then King and DT are good.

But what's wrong with Hopes?

I have a machine Tech rear hub with a freewheel that sounds like a machine gun. A question of personal taste if you like it or not but it did let pedestrians know you were coming. Also encouraged you to keep peddling.
