    A freind of mine recently bought a new bike and on a ride at the weekend we noticed a funny noise coming from the rear wheel. We checked to see if we could spot what was up with it thinking it might be something up with the disc brakes but couldn’t spot anything. On getting back from the ride we had a proper check over the bike and found that about 10 spokes in the rear wheel were very loose with no tension in them.

    Should he be making an issue of this with the bike shop? who to be fair are fixing it. Or should he just chalk it down to being new bike issues?

    Take it back, at minimum most shops will do a first service free.
    I know of some wheels using SP spokes that have come loose.

    Any decent bike shop will sort it out for you.

    Had the same issue with a set of hope wheels. Popped down to Hope who sorted them out FOC. Was a tad annoyed at the time but these things happen.
