    Roval Hub w/ DT Swiss 350 Internals - Inconsistent Freehub Sound - Video Inside

    See video below. The ratcheting sound on this freehub sounds wonky. Other freehubs of mine have a consistent ratcheting sound, but this one has an inconsistent sound. This can't be normal?

    I tried popping the freehub off to take a look inside, but I can't get it to budge. I don't have an axle holder to throw in a bench either. Tricks to getting the freehub off?

    I have used 3 different Roval hubs, all with DT Swiss internals. They all have that in and out or inconsistent sound as you've shown. They all work perfectly and never had any issues.

    Interesting. I don't exactly like the sound, but oh well, at least nothing is warped or damaged like I suspected

    Yep, both of my Roval DT Swiss hubs have sounded like that since new.

    I have new Roval Control SL 29 and noticed the hub makes a pulsing sound when freewheeling. Hope it's normal!
