This is the stupidest post ever. Why would you want to degrease your hub just so it's loud??? The people that build the hubs put the grease in, and you take of out just so your hub is louder? Do you think that the 12 year olds on this board know more than the engineers? Leave the grease.

Yes, I really live in Wyoming.

You haven't been here long have you? There have been several threads about this very subject, cause kids want loud cassettes. They are even willing to risk letting the hub wear out faster by taking out the grease, just to hear it better.

ITS DEFINITELY THE GREASE........I recently regreased my hub which was pretty damn loud before I greased it, and now its really quiet. I'm not interested in having a loud cassette, so I really don't care, not to mention the fact that the math goes kinda like this.........hub+grease=smooth rolling hub and cassette.
hub-grease=shitty rolling hub and cassette.

I'll beat the %@#kin brakes off you @%tch. Shut the %#!k up and ride your %*#kin bike @$$hole.

yeah, it'll take a while though. I wouldn't worry about removing the grease unless you're that impatient to make it loud. It'll probably take a month or so for the grease to work itself out.

Ive been annoyed at the idea of loud cassettes for a long time. I'm disturbed that people are willing to let parts wear out early for the sake of noise. It makes as much sense as letting the oil out of my car because I like that grinding sound.

yea when i first got my bike the hub was so quiet then like a month later its was a lot louder then before
