Any opinions? Campagnolo compatible please.

Sorry, accidentally posted this in the wrong forum. I understand it should be in the 'Everything Wheels' section. Please move.

I believe white industries has loud freehubs as well.

I don't see the point however on road bikes. on the trails it's nice because you can let people in front of you know you're there without having to remove your hands from the bars to ring a bell. On group rides it becomes annoying really quickly when everyone has freewheels that sound like you're pushing pencils through an electric fan. Just my 0.02$ :wink:

My Alchemy ORC is joyously annoying. (Campy cassette body as well.)
The Soul hubs are also loud.
Not sure about the new CK R45 for Campy - no personal experience. Hopefully it still has the bee sound.
White Indust? I had an old pair a million years ago and they packed some notable decibels.

R45's really aren't that loud, even running thinner lubricants. They coast with a smooth, but still audible, hum. My favorite road hub by far. Nothing like CK classics. WI hubs are louder, as are all of the "generic Asian" hubs that I have. The Hope Pro 3, as mentioned above, would be louder than your average hub, but how well they play with Campy 11 is up for debate. If you could rebuild the Hope with the internals from a Hope trials hub you would probably have the loudest road hub ever to exist. I cannot imagine what my trials hub would sound like laced to a deep, resonant carbon rim. I probably wouldn't ever want to ride it.

For higher end hubs I would put my money on Alchemy, followed by WI for volume. If you are just looking for a unique sound the R45's are cool, without the volume levels to bother those you are riding with.

Good feedback, thanks. The Hopes are the cheapest option and seem to be a fairly good weight. Planing to build up with a pair of Archetypes.

Loudest hub I ever heard was my friend's Zipp 808. The big hollow rim does wonders for amplifying the noise. I can only imagine a Chris King hub on something like that.

I had a Zipp Campagnolo hub on a 900 disc (the old type before the red/blue ones) and it made an absolute racket!

Tune hubs are loud too. So loud it's annoying.

Just had a set of old Pro3s rebuilt onto Archetypes. Absolutely kickass combo. Went 32h 2x front and rear.

Only downside being the thicker rim profile has exposed the fact my chainstays are out :cry:

Why did you go for such a high spoke count? What weight did the build come to?

Had the hubs laying around from when I rode CX. The Pro3s have been laced to Open Pros and 50mm carbon tubs. Bullet proof reliability. I don't have any scales at home but I can weigh them when I get to work tomorrow.

Tune hubs are the loudest that I've seen. The Alchemy ORC is a close second. T11s would be third. And surprisingly the R45s are the quietest of the bunch.
