Just noticed the last few days that there's a new sound coming from my rear wheel. Kind of a cross between a tick and a clank (metallic) sound. Almost sound like the spokes rubbing against something, but I know they're not.
Yesterday on the way home I figured out exactly how to make the sound happen. If I'm leaning into a left hand turn, it happens. Or if I lean the bike to the left, so the weight is on that side.. it happens. If I lean the bike to the right, or am making a right hand turn, it doesn't happen. And when I'm riding straight and level, it normally doesn't happen.
I'm thinking something broke - or is in the process of breaking - in the hub? Maybe a bearing? Any ideas?
Still seems to ride fine other than the sounds... but I can't shake the thought of my wheel busting off when i'm doing 50km/h downhill somewhere..
