    pinging noise from Fulcrum Red Metal 1

    I have a pair of Fulcrum Red Metal 1 XL wheels. I'm using these wheels for almost 1,5 year now and the last couple of months the wheels are making a 'pinging' sound when I'm up on the pedals, when I'm climbing and putting a lot of sideway stress on the wheels. The noise seems to be coming from where the spokes are attached to the rim and the hub. My LBS says the spoke tension is okay and I should keep the noisy points lubricated with teflon grease spray. Tried this, it helps a bit, but does not solve the problem. I't a shame because these wheels are really good, but the noise is driving me mad on large climbs. Any of you guys have the same problem ? Anyone with a solution ? Thanx
