The Open Pro click, what does it sound like?

So I have a Mavic Open Pro wheelset, rims are some of the older versions, you know, the ones that often develop the 'click'. And guess what else, the rear is making noise. Of course this noise doesn't happen on the stand, and my trainer is too loud to hear much over. So, in an attempt to figure out what it is, please, those who have heard the click, describe what it sounds like to you. Thank you.

It's probably just two spokes rubbing each other, just place a drop of oil where the spokes meet and the noise will go away. Sometimes if probably adjusted they stop making noise as well. If they are probably adjusted and the oil takes the sound away you could try rubbing a crayon or a wax candle on those same spots and that might last longer.

Try to determine if the click is happening right when the seam of the rim reaches the ground on every rotation. My Reflex rim does it, but I have to say it's very light and either stops making the noise at speed, or it's just so soft that my tires make more noise at 10+ mph.
