    Wash your bike a lot?

    Try a drop of oil on each spoke nipple, stick the wheel next to a radiator and rotate it every so often.

    It's probably the spokes moving in the rim, just need to lube them to keep it quiet.

    M8's made a clicking noise like he had a stick twanging the spokes, drop of oil where the spokes cross sorted it out

    My two year old pair of crossmax SLR's have recently started 'creaking' all the time and it appears to be coming from the spokes. I thought it might be time for a full service but this has made no difference and the local bike shop said the spoke tension was fine. Very dissapointed that a pair of wheels that cost me over £600 now sound like a bag of spanners. Has anyone else had problems?

    Thanks
