I've just bought a set of Carbone SL wheels with Continental GP4000s tyres (inflated to 110 psi). Just the ticket for club racing and time trialling. I notice that when up on the pedals to accelerate heavily (bike swinging from side to side), there is a creaking noise coming from the front wheel. When I don't accelerate as hard (i.e. not swinging from side to side), the noise almost disappears.
When sat in the saddle, there is no such noise, apart from the nice 'whoosh' of course . I weigh just under 87 kilos - could this be a contributing factor?
For Sale Shimano Q/R NX30 dynohub front wheel laced to thirty-six hole polished mtb rim. Stainless steel spokes, excellent condition £50 firm. Buyer collects or pays postage. (Colchester area) email: firstname.lastname@example.org for photo/further details.
Both braking surfaces on my 'as spec' Fillmore Wheels are shot and need replacing (eventually...)
As seems to be the way with cheap wheels, it seems to be only marginally more expensive to replace the whole shebang rather than going for two wheel builds on the existing hubs
I understand that loosely speaking, a 'track' front wheel = 'deeper dish' and more spokes - so a stronger wheel?
This Fillmore has never seen a track, never will do, and is used for commuting and 50 mile adventures around the South Downs.
