Noise coming from rear wheel.
There's a noise coming from my rear wheel, I can seem to figure out what it is. When I ride around, it makes noises that sound like I have those dinky things that go up and down your spokes (like kids have on their bikes, made in various colours...) and there's this clunging noise. I tried lifting the rear off the ground and pedaling, and I can hear it, it's almost like a rubbing sometimes, but I look, and it looks completely true and nothing appears to be rubbing. So, I pedal it backwards, still makes the sound, but the wheel isn't making noise.
So, my conclusion is that the axle could be broken or something like the freewheel is broken? Anyone have any ideas what it could be? Could it be something I could fix myself?
