Clicking noise when rear wheel spins
As I spin my rear wheel (Ritchey Pro DS OCR wheel and Ritchey Comp sealed bearing hub and Ultegra 6600 10 speed cassette), there is a clicking noise. It sounds almost exactly as if the magnet sensor for my computer on the front wheel was slightly contacting the fork, that sort of clicking noise.
The clicking noise is there as the rear wheel moves, regardless of if the drivetrain is going or not. I have carefully eyeballed the wheel, nothing is contacting it. There are no brake or derailleur cable ends hitting the spokes or anything. I have made sure that the QR is appropriately tightened. It is a deep dish aero wheel, and I am wondering if it is just the spokes rubbing together. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks for any suggestions.
