CLICKING CAMPY 10-SPEED CHORUS HUBwaynebiker

Has anyone experienced a clicking sound coming from their 10-speed campy rear hub. The sound usually starts during hard pedaling, or when standing out of the saddle. There is no sound when just spinning along. Any help or advice would be great thanks

It is probably due to several spokes being too loose. A clicking noise is not uncommon in Mavic Open Pros.

I just checked my rear wheel and the non-drive side spokes were loose. I am going to have my shop true the wheel and i should be silent. the wheels were built in dec. so I guess they have to be touched up a little bit
thanks
Your overall spoke tension is too lowKerry Irons

You need to get your shop to increase the total tension in the wheel, otherwise the spokes will loosen again.
