Hub issues.........or maybe not? Shimano RS80 C50

I have a set of Shimano RS80 C50 wheels. All standard.

 

They don't seem to be making that awesome sound in freewheel that some bikes do. (

)

 

Could it be the hubs need replacing or possibly just the freehub?

Those hubs are fairly silent. When it makes a noise then you have a problem! The freehub is a sealed unit and replaced rather than serviced - but good luck in getting one locally.

this is the way these freehubs should be. If it makes a lot of noise its dry and on its way out. The freehub is sealed and not servicable. You can only service the axle bearings

Shimano freehubs are quiet by design, thats how they should be. New one will be the same.

 

If you want a noisy freehub you will need to replace the hole hub with another brand that actually makes a noise.
