So, this rattle that I’ve been chasing, while slightly better with a different wheel, is still there under certain conditions.
However, I have an idea it could be the Wahoo mount I’ve been using. So, I’ve swapped it for the Garmin mount while I try and work out what it is. I have cranked down in the Puck bolts, but will first see what happens with the garmin mount.
- Tried numerous times remove and clean headset
- Replaced carbon expander bung
- Replaced front wheel
- Checked skewers
- Replaced wheel bearings
- Checked for visible cracks and damage
So, after a ride with just the garmin mounted, no noise. Nothing, not a damn rattle anywhere. I’ll give it a couple more rides to make sure, but it maybe cured.
So what is it about the mount I have for the Wahoo? Well, it could be a couple of things.
The Elemnt is a bigger unit, and heavy. So it could be moving, and hitting the handlebar clamp bolts as it sits very close to them. Which, I suppose could be the reason I went all out for a headset issue. Or it could of been the actual Puck on the mount being loose. I’ve really tightened them down. So if it does it after I refit, I’m likely to go down the route of it hitting the stem bolts.
The solution to that would obviously be a longer mount, like the k-edge. But I’m not really wanting to spend £50 on a mount.
