why angry bee sound

Ok, valid question. I ride bikes. My junior year of high school I saved up like 500 bucks and bought a wheelset, at the time I was riduculed by nearly everyone I knew for dropping that money on these wheels. The hubs last forever though. A decade later the hubs are still rolling, they’ve been built up 3 times, currently they’re my bombproof commuting/cyclocross wheelset. The hubs are made by Chris King, go read their corporate stuff, they’re an amazing company. 

Yes, but what the hell does this have to do with angrybeesound? Well, King hubs make a particular noise when they are freewheeling, something about 72 points of engagement instead of the normal shimano freehub 24. and this stuck in my head.

so there you go
