Aero wheel/tube stem rattle...(2 posts)

Aero wheel/tube stem rattle...Don in OKC
Apr 26, 2001 7:26 PM
A friend riding Rolf Vector pros has a rattle when on rough pavement that sounds like the rear wheel is about to come apart. Best we can figure is that the tube stem (long)is banging against the edge of the rim hole. Anyone experienced this? Got a fix?

Thanks Don

Remove the tube and wrap the valve stem with a layer of electrical tape wherever it makes contact with the rim (I had this problem with some tubes (not all of them, oddly) and my previous wheelset which had Mavic cxp-14 rims (30mm rim profile)).
