I'm very close to pulling the trigger on a set of 4.5's with the Carbon-Ti hubs. Will let you know if the deal comes through.

I’ve heard that the Carbon Ti’s are one of the loudest hubs out there when they aren’t engaged. How do they compare with the CK’s in terms of volume?

Thanks.

I think you can lower the volume by putting a bit thicker grease on the ratchet mechanism. It's just a balance between engaging properly and doing so at low temperatures.
