Noise from wheels

Postby andy 3654 » Sat May 24, 2014 04:33 am

I am getting what sounds like a twanging sound coming from the spokes which is really noticeable when out of the saddle with hard efforts like climbing.

I have checked the tightness of the spoke nipples and all seams fine and the wheels look true.

What could be causing it and should I be worried?

Probably low tension. They need to be checked and retensioned. The sooner the better

Check the rim for cracks too. Outside chance but it's caught me out before.
