yepp if its at night and your rding somewhere where you could get in trouble its good to have it quiet

3/7/2010 2:49 PM

I don't know what's up with loud hubs either. I'd like to think my hazard v2 is pretty quiet and couldn't be happier with it. When I get on some of my friend's bikes who have the primo mix or shadow rant, I almost find myself listening to the hub more than focusing on riding. Distracting I swear...

yeah dude
i wish my hub was quieter

3/7/2010 3:57 PM

the reason people like loud hubs is because back in the ol days a loud hub was a good hub. this is not necessarily true these days.

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
Bike check?

its personal preference... i love that sound, thats why im either getting a rant, wtp supreme, or an eclat... the little fags think its cool because they see it on someones bike and wanna copy 'em...

I like how loud the hazard v2 is,my bro has it, and my proper hub too. I don't know why people buy hubs just cause they're loud... just idiocy to me... But I hate not hearing ANYTHING though...

Terrible.



INSTANT engagement is the WORST thing unless you never go fakie. If you have instant engagement and try to go fakie you literally have to land pedaling backwards to not get thrown onto your back.



Regular hubs with a little delay are best, cause you can absorb some impact, THEN back pedal.







And what is the name of this company? I ask because George French is the only documented rider I have heard of to make a hub with instant engagement. My thoughts aim at Chris King, but they have a little play in them.

When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same, out there for the fun of it, the challenge of progression, and the personal accountability we have for the results we get. There are no teams to let down, no coaches to scream about a missed pedal, and no obstacles that cannot be overcome.

3/8/2010 6:21 AM

i cant stand the people who degrease their hub to make it louder!
thats retarded!!!!!!!! if anything add grease!!!!!!

3/8/2010 6:27 AM

im probably one of the few that has the primo mix and has it quiet im tired of fucking up my hubs

Have you ever noticed the word bed looks like a bed
