    ticking spoke, quits after 10 mins of riding.

    Every day when I leave my house my bike makes a ticking sound. It happens whether I pedal or not and speeds up if I go faster so I'm assuming it has something to do with a wheel. Also based off of pitch it sounds like a spoke.

    Neither wheel appears out of true and no spoke feels loose.

    After riding for about 10-20 mins the ticking goes away, but returns at the start of the next ride.

    Any idea what this could be? The only thing I can think of is the something to do with the temperature change from going inside the house to outside (difference of 25-30 degrees right now).

    Find the guilty pair, see what a drop of light weight oil does at the crossing...

    It if returns...closer examination may be warranted...

    Do you have a speedo magnet attached? Does it rub? Does moving it change anything? Just some ideas...

    Thought of that, but it doesn't appear to be the problem.

    Some rims have a piece of metal inside at the joint which aligns the ends when it is built. Sometimes those can become loose and make ticking sounds. I had a rim once that would always make the ticking sounds below ~6mph, driving me nuts on the steepest climbs. At higher speeds it made no sounds at all.

    My wireless computer sometimes ticks at lower speeds. Without any contact. Like a spark jumping the gap is the closest I can come to describing it.

    The real beauty of this play, aside from the fact it was made by my favorite team, is that it was perfectly executed. The receiver ran a perfect route; Wilson threw a touchdown pass, and the defender played his part perfectly. A thing of beauty.
