    Hope Pro2s are about as loud as it gets.

    Hope hubs are great hubs, too. Hope used to make complete wheelsets, but I believe they're just back doing hubs now. The beauty of that is that you can have 'em built into any kind of wheel you want. Handbuilt wheels are the best What're you looking for out of a wheel? A lot of this is discussed on the wheels and tires forum as well.

    If you can find them (fleabay), the old Hugi/Hayes hubs (the ones w/ the red lettering) are stoopid loud. Same type of clutch/ratchet deal as the new 240/440 hubs, but the hub shell must have some kind of weird resonance thing going!

    Heck yeah! I've got a set of Hugi ultralights on an old bike. I think the teeth were a little deeper profile and the springs were a little stiffer. Those never did wear into quiet. Still loud.

    Sitting on a brand new 32h frt and 36h rr set. My old set was on my '98 Karpiel Disco, now rebuilt w/ XC rims...never touched the bearing once in its life, still as smooth as day 1. I have a 3rd set built to some 700C rims for a commuter, also baby's-ass smooth. All of them, louder than hell; the original loud-ass hubs! My Kings and Hadleys can't EVEN come close to these!

    My hopes are pretty loud but I think my WTB superduty rear has it beat. one is a 135x12 and the other a 150x12 I know they make the 135x10 but I have not heard it I imagine its just as loud as the other. Plus they are cheaper then hopes and they make wheelsets

    I wish you the best of luck finding a set, they're pretty rare.
    I believe Magura also used the same Hugi hub, rebadged and painted yellow.

    Edit: they're not the lightest things but you'll literally have them for the rest of your life in normal use. AND, they did make a 110x20mm TA front. I think there's one (20mm front) up on PinkBike right now.

    CR Race, good luck finding a set. Anything that says Hugi was probably last produced 99 or 2000 or so. I think they Hayes badged hubs were around NOS until 2002 or so, but that's still a long time. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the only disc Hugi hubs made were the Hayes labeled version. Great hub if you can find a set.

    There was only one ratchet spring on the pre-240 Hugis, unless you were fortunate to have them upgraded by TT. After TT left DT, DT traded a full hubset of one's color choice for all of the locally upgraded rear hubs that were out there. There are about four TT hubs still out there. The metamorphasis of the internals makes even a first or second run 240 rear hub obsolete now.

    Then again, I'm just posting this for tha lulz, cuz I don't know nuthin' but trollsorsz.

    I have a couple sets of Hope Pro IIs, a set of Kings, a set of Hadleys and a set of DT240s on various bikes. I think my Hadleys are the loudest, then the Pro IIs, then the Kings and the 240s are pretty quiet in comparison.

    The Hopes are probably the best bang for the buck and very flexible (9mm, 15mm, 20mm front or 135 / 142 9, 10, 12mm rear). And as mentioned....they are loud.

    This is ridiculous. Loud hubs? Really? If it works well and happens to make a noise, then gr8. But to put noise at the top of your list, I just don't get it. This thread makes it seem like many people are paying attention to the loudness of their hubs. Who knew this was an important/attractive factor for mountain bikers? OK, I think the noise is part of the sport, but to design your wheels around this noise? Just seems weird.

    Canned air horns? Should be loud enough to override the noise-canceling headphones, yeah?

    I've seen people hang a cowbell on the bike to do the same thing, but I think a loud hub is a more pleasant sound.

    Loud hubs

    Late 90's/early 00's vintage Ringle' or White Industries should do the trick.

    I love loud hubs. The loud clicking is a sound I associate with quality. From the Hugi's I had years ago( as others mentioned) to the Hadley's and Hope's from more recent years(Hope Pro II Evo's currently.) The obnoxious ratcheting is a by-product of what I have found to be the best hubs for me.

    A friend just gave me an old Razor Rock Racing DH hub from an old Schwinn Straight 8. That hub is LOUD. I believe those were made locally as well(Denver-ish) in the early 2000's. Maybe if you can find some of those, that is the best loud hub for the Front Range and you could rock a piece of local history.

    But Hope Pro II Evo's are probably easier to come by

    Not sure what I'm taking negative rep for, but someone gave me a red chiclet, and said
    "crowded trails + loud hubs = early warning device"

    Thank you for explaining.

    I think that dude was out of AZ...but not 100%. I have one of his original carbon shell front 20mm.
    Do you have a Straight 6? Throw up some pics if you do! And, AFAIK, those have a weirdo 165mm axle? So, your RRR = no fit on any of today's bikes?

    I just realized I could see +/- reps. Made me cry quiet man tears a bit with the negatives. But over on RideMonkey you can see who handed it out, here it's anonymous. So how do I know if my e-friends actually are my e-friends?

    You may be right Pau11y. I do not have the bike, just the rear hub and axle from it.

    A friend of mine, I met through a Denver shop years ago, used to, as I understand it, own and run R3. It was out of operation by the time we became friends. Since then, unfortunately, he has passed. I do not know who else(if anyone) was involved with Razor Rock Racing, but they could very well have been out of AZ.

    As far as the hub I have, I originally thought 160mm spacing, but back in the day of early DH stuff, an oddball 165mm size wouldn't surprise me!

    The hub I have measures 122.5mm end cap to end cap and is 20mm. The axle with it is waay long, so yeah maybe 165mm, because I know those bikes had the floating brake arm that had to fit in there too.

    The reason why I'm so curious about your RRR rear hub is I think there was another application to the RRR 20mm TA rear hub...in the Tomac 204.
    The 204 is one of the only frames that has a 20mm rear TA native to the rear dropout! However, I just measured the face to face of the hub I have (Edco Big Rock) and it's 152mm, and face to face of the drop out is 165mm. What you have there, I believe, is the rear hub RRR sold along w/ their 20mm TA adapted dropout for the Santa Cruz Super 8 (135mm rear spacing for the older SC S8?). I think it was intended to work w/ the Brake Therapy floater as the floater arm was ~12 or 13mm thick. This is all from pretty faded memories...but I think the TA clamp was ~ 20mm a side. So, you have a total end-cap to end-cap dist of ~135mm for your hub + the floater arm...and another 40mm for the dropout clamp...175 or 180mm of thru-axle length sounds about right?

    That thing's a piece of super-boutique bike bits history, man!

    Thanks for the info Pau11y! yeah this is a weird one! You got a lot of old school DH knowledge

    the axle with both "bolts" snugged up to flush on the axle itself is 194mm from bolt flange to bolt flange. I just don't know! it could be off a super 8. That would make sense as my buddy Rob, was a Big Crank (Santa Cruz) rider in the midst of the super 8 era.

    I'm stoked another rider/forum member is familiar and experienced with the R3 product! I'm really curious now about the original use of this hub so let me know what you think of the 194mm axle length if you can.

    thanks!!

    Aside from the fact that the louder the hub the better the rider, obviously , a loud hub can alert people to your presence. Not a replacement for announcing yourself or even a bell, but it doesn't hurt.

    I don't hate hearing others' loud hubs, but I prefer to ride with quite ones. To each their own. Not sure why people are slinging around negative reps over this...

    Because there are a lot of petty little pvssies on here. I say, remove that feature and let ppl call it face to face (or post to post). I brought this up a while ago and you can't believe how many little b!+ches came out of the woodwork w/ neg-reps.

    I'm stoked another rider/forum member is familiar and experienced with the R3 product! I'm really curious now about the original use of this hub so let me know what you think of the 194mm axle length if you can.

    thanks!!
    I meant to do this the other day, and was finally able to do it at work (of all places...hahaha). Here's an old classified ad for a Super 8 w/ that RRR hop up kit: Santa Cruz Super 8 Downhill bike [Archive] - MORE Forums

    I'm trying to find an image of the thing...but I guess pics do have a life-span on the intardwebz

    And then, I found this (mainly for anyone else curious of what they look like)

    People throw neg rep around to see if someone gets their panties in a wad.

    Looks like they're winning.

    Hum...why do I read this as an admission of guilt?

    Chicken Power, did you hijack Wazee's profile?

    I only throw around positive rep. I'm magnanimous that way.

    Cool! Here is the one I have...

    the "end caps" on this hub are very close to being flush with the face the brake rotor sits against and with the freehub body.

    hardy har har...? I'm feeling antagonistic.

    Anyone that icludes "pvssies" and "b!+ches" in their vernacular opens themselves for derision and ridicule.

    My Stan's 330 rear is none too quiet, and it is mated to a Stan's ZTR 20mm thru axle on the front.

    Had Hopes on the last wheelset. They were louder still, to the point where people commented.

    I've been running the Stan's 330s for a year now too. Not quite as obnoxious as the Hopes, but still got the angry bees vibe.
    Ok, here's the deal. I have a hangover. Who knows what that means?

    I love all the sets of Hadley I have ridden. Of course enjoyed the CKing's I have ridden too. Also the I9 enduro hubs are super enjoyable too. If there is anyone interested in a Hadley's I have a set of Black 32h 9mm QR (not possible to convert) hubs that I will give you good deal on.
