    Novatec D712sb - b12 hubs

    Just got a new tallboy built up with a set of Novatec D712sb - b12 hubs they are almost silent. I like a bit of a ratchet sound, does anyone have any experience with these hubs?

    Cheap hubs if you ask me. Upgrade to Hope Pro 4 if you want more noise.

    Way late to the party, but since you are asking, just take them apart and put in less grease or a thin oil. Mine are loud enough, not hope or i9, but they let people know I am coming.

    In my experience when B2 freehub Novatechs get loud enough to hear they will start to skip. Keep them lubed and silent if you want them to last
