    quality QUIET rear hub....

    i have a couple of high end hubs between 2 bikes. the Hadley is awesome, the Hope is fine, both are loud the Hope intolerably so.

    is there a high quality relatively quiet hub out there, and i'm not talking Precision Stealth hubs. yes i'm sure they are excellent, would love one, but i can't afford that.

    thanks in advance.

    DT 350 is quiet enough and once you notice it, it's time to pop it open clean and grease.

    Shimano XTR.

    As quiet as can be, reliable and roughly the same price / weight ratio as Hope or similar. The titanium freehub body is awesome: say goodbuy to ever worsening cassette imprints that plague alu bodies. Maybe a bit dull in appearance, but that's for you to decide. Also centrelock is the only disc interface option.

    American Classic hubs are also quiet, but the poe isn't anything to write home about.

    American Classic and Shimano XT and XTR are quiet as mentioned already. The DT's are fairly quiet as well.
