    Replacing Freehub

    I have to replace my freehub and I was wondering what one I should get?
    Its a specialized Rockhopper bike.

    What are the Freehubs that click loud? Is there any advantage to those over others?
    Do higher priced ones really make a difference?

    Thanks in advance.

    Usually a load freehub indicates the number of engagement points and the number of pawls.

    The higher the number of pawls theoretically means a quicker engagement from a coasting or dead stop.

    You'll be limited to what is compatible with your hub. I've always been pretty happy with Shimano freehubs. They work. I put them on, and I don't have to worry about them.
