Annoying Noise – Grrrr!
I’ve had similar recently on my road bike and it turns out it was a spoke. whether rubbing against another or the rim I don’t know but it is annoying. It happened after I got forced into a pothole and walloped the back wheel. it didn’t buckle the wheel but I think it must have strained or stretched a spoke somehow. Annoying because the bike ran smoothly and silently and now doesn’t. Put the wheel into the lbs but they were unable to fix so stuck with clicky bike now.Posted 4 years ago
i have’nt properly know as ive not cleaned it for a while whilst its been dry – i will have a thorough check this weekend though
i’ve had noises in the past, ones that are constantly there, annoying as hell, but always managed to figure out what they are, this one however as its quite a trivial one and not always there/not as annoying i really cant track it down, its no real problem as its completely silent seated climbing so i guess ill just have to sit for climbing instead!Posted 4 years ago
so over probably the last 5 weeks ive had this really niggly annoying noise when climbing only out of the saddle and up steep road hills – its not a creak nor a click but something inbetween the both is as best as i can describe it 😆
it literally doesnt do it sat down at all, it doesnt appear to do it off road (unless its masked by the gravel/terrain), it only does it sometimes (not on every road climb standing), so its intermittent too
its not the end of the world type creak, as its never constant and its never there on all the climbs, i thought it may have been a chainsuck type noise from worn cassette/chain/ring (1×10) but ive changed all of that so rules that out!
i did think it could be headset (hope tapered) so ive given that a grease and re-fit (but it sort of sounds like its coming from the drivetrain area) and id ziptied all my cables quite tight so ive cut them all off too
i had some new shimano pedals recently so cant be that, seat post/saddle interface isnt a problem as its out of the saddle
rear maxle grease and done up tight
chainring bolts tight and greased, bearings seem fine in bike and no play, wheelset is brand new and was doing this noise on old wheelset too
any thing else missed out on?Posted 4 years ago
