Hello,
I just received a set of wheels built with CK Classic hubs. I was expecting a different/unique sound, but was suprised by just how loud these are. Can anyone confirm that this is how they are "supposed" to sound?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

send you a pair of nice, quiet wheels like some really sweet Shimano R-535's to swap, so you won't wake the dead with your obviously trashed King wheelset. LOL Got King Discs/X317's on my mtb and love 'em :o)

that's the way they normally sound, you can always pick em out on the road/trail.try to get used to the sound, as chris king hubs are some of the strongest /precise hubs on the market.
