    Loud clicking in the rear wheel

    Hey all. I was wondering if I could get some input into a potential problem I've noticed with my Bonrager Race X Lite wheels and DT hub. I just got a Trek 5200 that came with these and I've noticed that when the rear wheel is free-running, there is a rather loud clicking sound. I had been under the assumption that this clicking sound should be relatively quiet (such that when riding on a road, one can barely hear it).

    Could it be broken bearings? Or is it simply an eccentricity of the DT hub?

    Its normal. For some reason newer/more expensive freehubs are very loud.
