I assume that you're not talking about the noise that the freehub makes, or when a brake pad touches the rim if it is slightly out of true, or a computer magnet, or a tire touching the frame or a brake, or even the front derailleur cable hitting the spokes. If it really is the rim, then the most likely problem is a loose metal fragment in the rim, though it could also be a very loose spoke. If it is a loose metal fragment, then you should be able to hear it by picking up the wheel and shaking it in several directions.daniell said:I spun the wheel and I heard a clicking sound. It sounds like it is coming from the rim. Any ideas what this could be?
If the wheel was machine-built, it's a possibility. It's not uncommon for me to find an extra nipple or two in the rim of a machine-built wheel when assembling a new bike. Good place to keep a spare I suppose, if you can stand the noise.daniell said:I had the bike on the stand today. I spun the wheel and I heard a clicking sound.
