Aaaaah, takes me back to my MTBing days in the early 90's when Brittannia still ruled the waves with the likes of Tim Gould, and Tim Davies etc. My memory is a bit hazy but I think Tim Davies still holds the record as the only cyclist to win the man vs horse vs bike challenge in Llanwrtyd Wells - a record unlikely to be broken as bikes are no longer allowed because of the stupid "no racing on bridleways" rule.

I connected the bike up to the turbo trainer last night and there was no clicking at all. I guess that eliminates the hub then (thank god!) as all the weight is on that when using the tt.

So that just left the carbon wheel. I had another really good check on the wheel but couldnt find any fractures, and the bridges were all glued solid. Mad

One thing I think it 'might' be is the adaptor to the tubular, and the extension I fixed to it, clicking against thewhole through the deep rim. If I force it left and right it DOES make a clicking noise. So maybe with the weight on the wheel this adaptor/extension is moving left and right in the hole.

Only prob now is how to stop it. I guess I could put somethign inside. Or I could try changing the extension. Dont want to change tyres as its expensive brand new one and the hassle of re-taping it back in.... Mad

Things could be looking up - may not have to learn the speed-unicycle afterall. Wink

AND if anyoen has clicking probs in future, you know who to ask... Very Happy

Darryl

I've come across this problem before. As you say, it is often caused by the metal valve extender knocking against the rim on each revolution. The classic cure is to mould a bit of blue tack in the space where the extended pokes through the rim. This will stop it knocking against the wheel rim and also mean that it is easy to remove if necessary. Hope this helps.

Plain blue? Surely not! Perhaps a blue with red and white striping.... Very Happy
