What you're missing is the cause of the noise.. (sorry couldn't help myself).

What kind of ft hub? How many balls came out on each side? And went back in, both sides? What is the condition of the cones, balls, hub shell cups? You haven't said that the rim isn't rubbing against the rim/frame/fender. Is it? Try this wheel on a different bike. Try a different wheel on this bike. How true is the rim? How tight are the spokes? Does the tire have any damage? Andy
