A friend of mine recently got a bike with an XRF8w hub and he mentioned that it is noisy in all gears above 3 or so.
I have one as well, and mine, too, is noisy in the higher gears.
I never had that experience with an XRF8, though (and I've had three).
So my question is, is the XRF8w always noisy, or are these two just defective? Does the noise ever go away? Mine has only about 2500 miles on it.
