|Speaking of Ksyriums...how do they sound?||lnin0|

|I was out riding my stock Campy wheels today when I realized how much I love the loud Campy freewheel over the quieter Shimano sound.
Having just ordered a set of Ksyriums I am wondering if anyone can tell me how the Mavic freewheels sound -- am I going to miss that distictive Campy sound?
|Louder than Ultegra||spookyload|

|I just purchased my foul weather wheels that have Ultegra hubs, and was also suprised how quiet they were. I use the 2001 Ksyriums, and they have a definite louder sound. Not as hollow sounding as the spinergy wheels I use on my mountain bike, but fear not...the wheels are plenty loud.|

|My 2001 K's are quiet when I coast. Is the freewheel supposed to click?|
|around as loud as Campy, you'll miss nothing||weiwentg|

|not as loud as CK, though. I once heard a recording of the CK freehub. it sounded like a sci-fi laser beam at full blast. the Mavics are less loud than Hugi, and around as loud as Campy (I've heard all 3 in action).|
|My 2002 Ksyrium Sl s are loud like the concord taking off||Old_school_nik|

|Put a baseball card in the spokes like when you were a kid.|

|Haha! I'd pay cash money to see USPS team in full
regalia with all of their bikes rigged with playing
cards in the spokes. "Intimidate the opposition".
I bet it would sound like a B-29 taking off.
|Not clear on the concept||grzy|

|You're supposed to pedal your bike. When you pedal it shouldn't make noise. If your bike is making noise and you're not pedaling then you're going slow. Slow. Slow. Slow. Slow. |
My advice is to get some Chris King hubsets - you'll love 'em.
Hey, you aren't one of those guys driving a rice-burner with the really loud exhaust are you?
