Bianchi Wheel Noise??

I have a Bianchi Cento Strade with Ambrosio WS23 wheels. I've done approx 600 miles on the bike with no problem, other than the front wheel developing a "noise". This noise only happens when the wheel is banked, i.e, you're out of the saddle rocking the bike. It sounds like it's spoke related as it sounds very similar to the noise you get after you've trued a wheel and the spokes "ping" to their new tension. Has anyone else experienced this? or is it just flex in the wheel? It's an annoying niggle on an otherwise perfect bike...

    Could be your headset.

    Worth a check.

    My Askiums done this. Check the bearing play and adjust as necessary.
  • I'll do that. It did have a free "check" from evans a few weeks ago.....this noise has developed since i've had it back. The obvious thing is to take it back to them, but the service I had from them didn't fill me with much confidence in their ability!!
