Hello,

I'm a new owner of a gen 1 Mosh/Cty. Assembly was easy and I really like it so far. I do have a couple of questions maybe someone here can help me out with.

The first question is about the freehub noise (the clicking sound the rear wheel makes when in motion but not pedaling). It's louder and "buzzier" (at high speeds) than what I was used to. I assume this is normal? This is the first single gear bike I've had since I was a young kid.

The second question is about the disc brakes...they are quite prone to squelch and squeal. Again, I assume this is normal and they will "break in" with use. I've never had a bike with disc brakes and certainly never anything with a build quality like the Serial 1.

Thanks in advance!

Yes the clicking is normal. It’s actually loud by design in these bikes. The freehub is just like a ratcheting wrench in a sense, just with more pawls, stronger springs, more deeper splines.
As for the disc brakes. Serial 1 has a video on how to properly bed the disc brakes. It’s like a 15-20 minute process of controlled braking to heat up the pads/rotors and bed pad material into the rotors.
