I just bought a profile mini hub. It is female. I put it on my bike however when I pedal it make a weird noise and it doesn't sound too good. Are they all like this? How do I fix it? Also how doi tighten the damn thing? I tighten it and the other bolt spins to and when I hold the opposite one with an Allan key the chain gets lose?

front or rear? could be the bearings. could be a cracked cone nut. if it's rear it could be the pawls/springs since theyre notoriously weak or it could be that it's missing the adaptors. we need more info to go on and properly diagnose this problem

It's a rear hub, it's only when I pedal. When I let is coast down a hill etc. it's fine. It's sort of a low slow clickingg noise

Mine sounded harsh and skipped a few times when it was brand new.After a few days of break in time,it's fine.
