    Is the Shimano 105 (5600 or 5700) rear hub's free wheel silent or noisy?

    It's just the free wheel on the no name hubs that came on the Secteur Elite are very noisy imo, and I'm thinking of changing getting a set of wheels built to replace them and 105 stuff would match nicely with the rest of the bike.

    Shimano freehubs are definitely on the quiet side - silent is pretty difficult although my ultegra rear isn't far off!
