Mavic Ksyriums Misbehaving(2 posts)

The rear non-drive side spokes on my Ksyriums have a habit of 'clicking' on climbs which sound like knitting needles tapping together!. I can reproduce the sound when I squeeze certain pairs of spokes together. I have read similar comments in the archives but no cure mentioned. Has anyone had similar experiences and actually cured the problem? I tried spraying WD40 on the nipples without success.
Any reply appreciated.
Spokes or rims?Kerry

Either way, you may need some actual lubricant instead of WD-40. Try a touch of oil on the nipples, and wax works well where the spokes touch.
