    Spoke noises...

    Lately i've been noticing noises coming from my spokes. It sounds like a sort of rubbing, or creeking sound. It happens when the wheels are rolling, little noise with no weight on the bike and quite a bit with weight. All the spokes are tight and i have never noticed the noise before. Anyone think they know what the problem is?
    Thanks

    Do you get the sound in all your gears?

    No plastic guard, and its coming from both wheels. When pedalling or just rolling along its the same.

    Oh and how long have you had them, like did this start as soon as you got them or just recently after you've already used them for a while

    think inward like maybe bearings.do you do a lot of jumps? the noise can travel and sound like its coming from another place

    i was thinking that would be the biggest possibility. i do jump a lot. i dont see how the spokes could be making noise like that, it just sounds like a noise that would come from them but seeing how its the front and rear it may be bearing related. it'll get checked out in a couple weeks when upgrades come.
    thanks!

    the spokes may make a "popping" sound but that usually is soon after an adjustment or when one breaks but not a rubbing sound. I did a curb hop once and my back wheel started making a clicking sound. I got home ,pulled the wheel off and saw nothing.I pulled the bearing dust caps off and the whole darn thing fell apart. the inner cup was GONE!!! and id been riding the heck out of this bike.I cant imagine what would have happened if the noise hadnt started. like freezing up at high speed. get 'em checked out soon
