Lol why?
You've got good hubs, quieter is more efficient ;)


But noisy ones act to harass those in front of you on a trail AND they shout at you to pedal more if you can hear them... or at least that's why I like them...

Well the hope lolypop sticks are inside the free hub body, so the little springy sticks go against a tooth edge, when the loud lolypop sticks go one way you get drive, when freewheeling it clacks against the teeth.
