Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

My rear mavic ellipse is making some awesome noises

Just finished putting on the rear wheel, and my rear Mavic Ellipse is making a noise that sounds like a tire rubbing against the frame, but the tire's clearance is good. Nothing I can see is rubbing against the frame, and the noise sounds like it's coming from the hub.

Also, I only hear it when the wheel is tightened down.


Any Ellipse owners help me out?

Maybe the axle is rubbing on the dust cap

The bike shop I work at is closed today and tomorrow, and I really really want to ride. I think it's the dust cap, because I got new ones when I replaced the axle
