Im pretty much devastated already. The wheel making this strange scritching noises when I use my brakes.
If I block the wheel by brakes and move the wheel back and forth, it will sound the same.
The noise is like when a metal piece fits in some place, then goes back and fits another.
The culprit is the wheel itself, we put another wheel and noises disappeared.
Any advices, what can I check? No repair man can understand what the culprit is.
The front wheel is mavic, with aero spokes.
I've made a video of the noice and how I make it.
There is a 15mm through-axle, not a quick-release.
Edit 07.18: I've made another video showing more details about the problem, please check it. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-JQWkXHByyHZIkXyflTdmU1DsBcV-ttA/view?usp=sharing
Not sure if the disc is the issue. When I block the brakes and rotate the wheel, the disc moves naturally(as pads move) and then stops.
When I continue rotating the wheel, the disc is not moving(I'm 90% sure of it).
Rotor is installed correctly.
About spokes : I "guitared" (if that what you mean by plunking) every spoke - some of them feel natural, some loose.
The rim is damaged, the guy made everything to make it true as much as possible
Also, as you can see, I can make the noice by rotating wheel by spokes, not the wheel. I did that for every spoke combination - nothing.
Bearings: I like this idea. But as for me, bearing look stiff and all. However the clicking sound seems like coming from the inside of the hub. I've tried to disassemble it, there was a C shaped washer that keeps the bearings inside. I've stopped there, but I think I can manage to proceed.
Also, I've tighten the axle thread as much as possible, but no luck.
PS: I know that wheel is a garbage, but I'm broke and curious!
PSS: Don't afraid to make an answer, so I can comment on it, that would be easier to communicate. Thank you all.
I found a videowith the same problem as mine. The guy says the hub is a culprit!
