I have a 2010 Giant anthem with 24 hole straight pull spoked disc wheels. The front wheel makes a clicking sound when you lock the brake and rock the bike. At first I thought it was a brake problem but I fitted a different front wheel (from my wifes bike) and there was no sound. Her wheel is six bolt disc and mine is centre lock (saint) so I was wondering if this has something to do with it. Any help would be appreciated.

This is the wheel.

could it be that your rotors are moving on the rivets?

how loud is the click?

It's not the rivets, they're solid but I need a lock ring tool to check the fixing of the rotor. I'll get one tomorrow and see if there's any slack. It's tighter than I can move by hand but I want to make sure it's on properly.

Thanks for the replies and suggestions. :)
