No, it’s on the explosif. Was all fine until I mentioned in another thread it was as smooth as a babies butt. I’ll try the wax thing.they will creak when you squesh them by hand, but they aren't normally moving about enough to do it when riding and it can point to much more serious issues like rim eyelets being kaput or flanges giving way.
find yourself a candle.
rub it on a cloth till it looks like a wax jacket.
slip it between the spokes to transfer the wax to the spoke interface.
if it still creaks it's something else.
is this on the inbred? if yes, take the bolts out the rim brake bosses and luggage mounts and try again.
