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...

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.

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.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.
