I had rode 800 km on my Giant Anthem 29er without problem until I upgraded to a pair of Easton wheel-set (model EA90 XC) from a local distributor recently. There is a constant squeaking noise from the rear wheel (Please see youtube videohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLFwcmjBAsc&feature=youtu.be). I had goggled the Internet to find out if anyone has similar issue and some people claimed that it originated from the Easton hub.
Now this morning, I took the bike to the distributor but the bike technicians over there insisted that the squealing was an issue of pad rubbing against the rotor. They were adamant that there was nothing wrong with the hub. However they offered me a bike full check up servicing for 100 over bucks which I find it very ridiculous. I left the shop and was thinking of solving it myself...
However until now I still could not solve the issue, despite disassembling, cleaning relubing, retightening, everything associated with the drivechain. I highly doubt there was any problem with these drivetrain components and it was definitely the hub making the noise. Anyone got issue with EA90 wheels before? Any advice for me to tackle this issue?
