Ok I know what u're gonna say : the sound doesnt matter, blablabla, and I know that...
I just want to know if is good for the hub to be without the grease (it sounds much louder)
And what would be the consequences
Thx!

It's ok, but it'll wear down the pawls faster.

I mean your hub will be full of metal shavings which will destroy the bearings and ratchet ring, but who cares. Thats why they sell replacement hubs, right?

Any lubricant works for the most part. I use Teflon lube on my driver, which is a liquid lubricant. It works the best in my experience. Makes my drive train surprisingly smooth. It does need to be redone like every month or so however.
If you use a liquid you will need to use a fair amount of it (12ish drops) where as you only need a lick of grease. The thicker it is, the less of it you need and the less often you will need to change it, so I suggest just a dab of grease so that you wont have to regrease it hardly ever.
But honestly, it wont get any louder. 12 drops of liquid compared to just a tab of grease, silences it about the same.
I say invest in a pair of headphones. I never ride without mine, so I dont ever hear my driver anyway.

You can always add an extra spring to your driver to make it louder

Tampoco tanto e, depende de cuanta eches, pero hay gente que compra los bujes solo por el sonido, por lo q les sale rentable.

is it the one where dubstep fucking sucks

and I tote pictured him riding his bike listening to it, and since he feels the music,once the wubbing hits, he just starts bobbing up and down and eats it... anyone else?
