Campy grinding sound - could it be my hub or freewheel?Rick S

Hello all -

I hear a grinding, tinkling sound from the rear of the drivetrain - regardless whether I'm pedaling or coasting. i've got open pro rims with record hubs. My chain and rear derailuer are within spec. - What do you think is the cause? Checked my brakes - they aren't rubbing. Could be that the wheel spokes are out of true or loose - I'm a heavy (195#) rider...I'll pull 'em off and check tonight. By the way, how do you lube record hubs -I think they have a port - what fitting do I use to lube 'em?

Thanks for your help!
