My wheels are making a pinging noise every now and then. ping ping ping ping. Almost like the spokes are moving around. It happens on corners when the bike is leant over. any one know what this is and a solution? It's been doing it since new about 3 months ago, I thought perhaps it would stop as the wheels bed in but just the same!

    wheel needs retensioning. Back to the shop.

    ok thanks. What with the ratchet sounding rough, the bearings making creaking sound I think a visit to the shop is in order!
