Radwagon Rear Wheel Creak


New Member

I have a Radwagon with now about 200mi on her. After the break in period I've adjusted breaks and tightened/inspected most everything else. I have decent mechanic skills.

I'm hearing a creak or 'tinkleing' sound from the rear wheel. Much more pronounced at low speed, does not seem to make a difference if the motor is engaged or not. My factory standard seat creaks just a bit, but this is coming from the rear wheel. The disc breaks have been adjusted, so the sound is not from there.

I suspect it is spoke related, but I have inspected spokes and don't find any loose.

Thoughts? Should I just crank on the spokes a bit more?

I would be absolutely sure it wasn't a brake dragging (disconnect the cable maybe?), then focus on the spokes.
