hi all, quick q
been riding on bora ultra 35's and listening to its lovely ratchet/freewheel sound

however yesterday on the last descent yesterday i realized the sound was no longer present and became extremely muffled (pretty much silent)
now i feel like im riding an e-bike cause its eerily silent when not pedalling

any ideas on what might have happened?

thanks

Took the cassette body off a new pair of Campag wheels only the other day and was surprised to find so much grease, which I removed and substituted with some oil. Had I have left it it most probably would have dissipated and led to a quietening of the pawls over a relatively short period of use.

Either that or something has loosened/tightened in the hub. Remove wheel and pull back and forth on sprockets to check for lateral movement. Check for bearing play in the wheel. Check to see if bearings are moving freely - you can only really do this with the wheel removed from the bike.
