Greetings everyone,

Please have a look at the attached video. There's a noise in the rear wheel I only hear when riding. It began at the end of a 7 mile ride on smooth pavement. Any ideas what the cause is? The bike is an Ariel Rider X Class with about 28 miles on it.

Yes. The spokes were loose. I tried using my own spoke tool but I made the wheel wobble. I have no skills, I guess. Took it to a shop and they fixed it. (Trued the wheel.)

That's terrific. The spokes seem tight enough on this wheel but when I lubricated them the noise stopped. Thanks for the info. I'll get someone to true the wheel.
