Anybody got a cure for the road noise on a Trek OCLV.
It seems to come from the forks.

I would assume that road noise would be a product of riding on the road. If it was noise from the fork, it would be fork noise. A good cure for the road noise is to ride off-road.

The correct term is road roar. It is by product from the tyres when travelling over certain types of road surfaces.
For some reason on the trek OCLV this noise is amplified by the front end of the bike. It is somethig I have never experienced with any other bike, and I would like to find a cure. If you can not contribute anything constructive don't bother.

The vagueness of the question left for only one reply. Consider making certain that adjustable bearings have no play, and that there is no piece on your bike that can knock against the frame (cable ends, etc). My headset was not installed properly from the factory, and the headtube required facing. Check the whole bike thouroughly. My OCLV doesn't generate any noises atypical of a carbon bike, and the roads around here aren't baby-bum smooth.
