    148x12 boost “loud” hub suggestions

    I’ve ordered a 2020 Marin Rift Zone 3, the specs only say it has a “forged alloy 4 bearing rear hub” so I’m not expecting anything too great. I’ve gotten used to louder hubs, specifically an older Sun Ringle dirty flea and really want a loud hub on the new Marin. Anyone have any suggestions for a reasonably priced 148x12 boost 32h that is centerlock compatible ? Thanks for any help.

    Anything with pawls. The larger the pawls, the louder they are. Hope, Mavic ITS-4, I9 101, and I9 Torch comes to mind. I9 Hydras are significantly quieter than the Torch hubs.

    Alternatively, you can disassemble your current hub, give it a good cleaning and degreasing, and apply a very thin coat of oil or grease to the internals. That should make them noticeably louder.
    I no longer like to party. But I like the idea of it.

    Another Hope vote for loud here.

    Besides being loud, they are good hubs.

    i9 101s are nice and loud, inexpensive for the engagement and quality also.

    i looked at them, they're available with all the options i need, although i'm not 100% sure what cassette compatibility i will need until the bike arrives. It's a sunrace 11-50 12spd which i think are Shimano compatible. thanks for the input.

    11-50T should use the standard Shimano HG.

    My E-13's are definitely louder than my Torch I9's. Last Hope I had was a 24 poe and it was loud but the low poe made it sound just like like a card in the spokes.

    Project 321 hubs can be ordered loud or quiet. I guess they use different pawl lubrication. Great hubs but pricey.

    Their pawls use magnets, instead of springs. There are two sets of magnets that are available, strong (loud) and weaker (quiet).

    Thanks KThaxton for correcting me on the Project 321 hubs. I assumed it was oil viscosity as opposed to different strength magnets, but their website specifically shows different pawls for loud vs. quiet. I appreciate the insight. Thanks.
