    It is in the freehub body per your diagnostic.

    Previously I took the freehub body off, soaked, flushed, and oiled. It made no difference. So ignore? I assume it isn't a safety issue, just an...

    Oddly, I don't mind the kids with the noisy speakers rattling my car windows as they go by (though they will be the deaf old men of tomorrow). I don't mind speakers on bikes, it was kind of nice on...
