+REP TO HELPFULL

I bent my back rim and I have horrible stock tires, so I am going to change out everything. Here is what I was thinking of getting.

If you think I should get different rims of tires please tell me, I want to hear what you have to say.

FRONT
Tire: Ruben Folding 2.25
Rim: Odyssey 7KA
Hub: ???
Spokes: ???

BACK
Tire Folding Ruben 2.15
Rim: Odyssey 7AK
Hub: ???
Spokes: ???

I want my back hub to be loud:D
I guess that wouldn't be the casette but I am not too familiar with hubs/cassetes/freewheels. So help me out!

+REP TO HLPFULL

profile hubs are very loud, the cheaper loud version would be a proper 8000 but i didnt hear that one in real...just heard from folks...
Tires i would say, take some fit foldables...I like their grip and their linestyle

yer most people will tell you (including me) that profile hubs are the way to go.... mind you they are quite expensive . but well worth the money if you can afford them

cheaper but stil good cassette hubs would be proper or primo mix cassette or the oddysey hazard cassette

Get Odyssey Aitken k-lyte folding tires. They are light and fast

for hubs go with Profile or Madera (Madera is made by Orofile) because they are bulletproof and light

For spokes i would go with those DT Swiss ones ive been hearing so much good stuff about

How do I know how many teeth on the cog I should get? I am also getting a new sprocket so what would be a good ratio?

Sprocket - Hub

25 - 9
28 - 10
30 - 11

Do it how you like it, you just shouldnt have like 30 - 9, I prefer 25 - 11 but its a question to your taste...

Shadow conspiracy Rant V2 Cassette Hub (72 Engagement points), Shadow Conspiracy Rant Front hub. You can go with DT Swiss spokes.
A Good Ratio is 28-10, Any lower than 10 and it puts stress on your chain.

Since I have the money should I just go for the Profile mini cassette? Or do you think conspiracy or odyssey is better?

why do you want your hub to be loud? profile is nice but they dont even make an allen end to their axle so working on them is great fun. I would say the wtp supreme is the loudest hub ive ever heard waaaay louder than a mix. like so loud that when you film it ruins the video and drowns out your ipod. (that is so useful) I am guessing when the ratchet comes out it will be loudest.

maderas are the exact same thing as profiles, but alot cheaper.

for loud, WTP, and shadow hubs are loud. so are primo just in more of like a buzz.

front hub would be madera, or vandero, or g- sport, or even fly..

get some flowmasters for your hub and when you cut your bars down and realize its not trendy weld the pieces back on. do you have a striped shirt and bandana you can throw on for a photo op too?
