    Free hub body

    I would like to replace my free hub body with one that makes the loud ratcheting noise. I Do not like sneaking up on walkers or runners and scarring them. I do not want to have to yell out things for them to see me, I would like for them to just hear me coming. I also have a look at me personality so that works too. I have a 2011 giant revel 1. How can I figure what free hub body would be compatible with the current stock hub? Thane for your comments good or bad!

    I don't think that changing your freehub body will make any difference for you. What wheels/hubs are you running? The internal engagement system is what makes the noise you are looking for.

    It doesn't really work that way, those Formula hubs have one option and you already have it. However, you could use a bell or better yet this

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    I'm beginning to overcome my "momentum issues" but even that is happening slowly.

    The Turbospoke is mine! There's a store not too far from me that sells them.
    Everything that kills me, makes me feel alive
