    rear wheel noise

    I started hear/feel a ping from my rear wheel on my track bike. I am not a expert on wheels but from what i can tell there isn't a a loose spoke and the wheel is true? Does anyone have any ideas on what could cause this problem?

    Check the trueness of the wheel if it has presta valves check the ring on the presta valve they can make noise to
    The Ferrari ('05 Bianchi Forza) had a flat (Stupid Glass) the Japanese wagon ('77 Nishiki with Arkel Utility Basket) was in the body shop (On my bench being repainted...repent ye rust)
    so I took the SUV ( Cannondale V2000 Active 100SL)

    You can also lube where the spokes cross. This will sometimes eleminate some noise.
