We just took the ECDM out for a test ride before heading to AORTA and the late model White Industures disk rear hub is making noise that sounds something like a brake vibration (except that it didn't stop even after the brake was completely removed). It is not continuous but occasionally it will make the noise a few times then stop. There seems to be some drag accompanying the noise. It seems more likely to occur at medium speeds that at low speeds. (We don't do high speeds :>)
The wheel truns very smoothly and freely with the tire off the ground.
The intensity of the noise is variable and it MAY be started by hitting a bump (but not sure). It is usually an of then off noise at approximately the cycle of a wheel revolution (but not always). The frequency of the "Squak" seems to be the same as the frequency the spokes make when tapped.
I'm getting ready to tear the hub down but any advice would be welcome.
