Hi everyone. I have a maintenance issue for my new Trek 1.2 WSD (about 3 weeks old). I've tried looking for answers online to no avail and I won't be able to get to my LBS until next weekend so wanted to check here too.
After (accidentally) going over a huge metal grate in the road yesterday morning (the kind that vents the subway underground) while in a left turn only lane, I started hearing a rhythmic clicking sound when I start to engage my brakes to slow. It stops when I brake a bit harder to come to a full stop. The weird thing is that I can't duplicate it when I'm not sitting on the bike so it is really hard to tell what it is. My boyfriend went around the block on it and he can't figure it out either.
The brake pads are properly aligned to the rim and I ran my fingers along the rim and I can't feel any bumps or obstructions. I think it is coming from the rear tire. The performance of the brakes don't seem to be affected but I don't want to just assume that they will hold. I also can't feel any obstructions or anything off when pedaling.
Has anyone encountered anything similar to this? Needless to say I will be avoiding that left hand turn in the future!
