    Free Wheel Grind

    I've experience intermittent grind noise coming from my rear wheel while free wheeling.The noise stops when peddling. What are possible causes?

    This is a mechanical problem and as such should be posted in 'components/wrenching'. Your noise could be any number of things, what kind of wheel do you have? Is it really a freewheel or is it a cassette? Provide some details and we can move forward.

    Thanks, I will move thread. It's a Mavic Krysium wheel with a Campy Record cassette. I'm not sure if coming from wheel or cassette. For about two weeks prior there was a clicking noise coming the back as well. That clicking only occurred when I was riding, not while bike was on my work stand.

    Once you said MAVIC, then the probable issue is lubrication. Take it apart, clean and lube, then reassemble. Clicking while pedaling opens a whole 'nother can of possible worms. You'll have to be a lot more specific about that.
