What happened to the ball bearing clicking sound?
My bike is 2 1/2 yrs old,..I thought I was keeping up with the maintenance and stuff. I like to keep it clean and lubed. But when I watch some mtb'ing vids, I can hear the clicking sound as they go by without peddling, kwim? And thought,..wait,..I don't hear mine anymore. What happened?
That would be Hope, Chris King, or loud hubs.
Don't forget DT Swiss, Mavic, Sun Ringle' and a whole slew of others.
The pawls on your hub are worn in (or perhaps out). Depending on the number of miles you've ridden, it may be time to service your hub.

Agreed. Take it to you LBS and have them check it out. A hub service is extremely cheap at the shop I go to.

Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?
