    Are there high-end single speed freewheels that aren't made by White Industries?

    I'm looking for a well made single speed freewheel (ala White Industries) that doesn't make a loud whirring noise. I have a few of the WI ones and while they're great for short rides, would rather something not quite as loud on longer outings. The Shimano one I have is decent but not great. Thanks

    Don't coast as much and you won't hear the noise.

    Why is that such a big concern for you? I find the clicking to be rather satisfying... stop coasting or go fixed if it's really that big a problem.

    I agree, the WI is simply annoying. I switched to the chrome and black Shimano...what' s not to like?

    IRD makes one. No idea how loud it is, or how good it is for that matter. Their multi-speed freewheels are pretty quiet.

    Agreed. Not a bad freewheel for $20. What size do you need, I may have a new one...

    My shimano makes literally no noise and it's fine, though it's a bit rusty
