Creaky spokes

Post by ballibeg » Thu May 31, 2018 4:54 pm

After the Gravel Dash there a creaking noise from my front wheel. Inspection reveals where the spokes cross there's wear. I think the noise is from them rubbing. Maybe a drop of oil will do. Is this common?

Not that common but I've had it before - a quick spoke tighten cured it.

Lack of tension I’m guessing. Do they flex a lot when you squeeze opposite pairs?

Edit, beaten too it by Stu.
