    Nexus 7: Is this noise normal?

    Hi,

    I bought this bike 1 month ago, and it is my first internal-gear hub (Nexus 7).

    It is a bit annoying because it's making some noise pedaling, louder on 1-5, and seem to be dimmer on 6 and 7.



    What do you think? I have disassembled it up to the stroke, and seems everything fine :S but I don't like that rattling noise, sounds like something wrong....

    That's normal. All of Shimano's Nexus hubs make a ton of noise. They quiet up a bit as they get older, but not much.

    Ok, thanks..... then there is nothing I can do to make it more quiet? more grease?

    I have 3 Nexus 8s that are just as quiet as my Alfine 8 & 11 spds. Knowing that the 7 was a bit noisy is why I never wanted one.
