possible spoke problems

    i have the suspicion that my 24" trainer is developing some fault with
    the spokes, but i don't know much about maintenance and i'd appreciate
    some confirmation/advice. i can occasionally hear soft clanging noises
    from the wheel, just when rolling or idling, and squeaks when i hop.

    it's the standard £100 unicycle.com trainer, which i've had for only
    three months or so. i don't use it for anything too extreme - the odd
    ride down stairs, and once or twice hopping from heights in excess of a
    foot. is it just a case of adjusting the spokes or something more
    serious?

    just try tightening all your spokes, or go to a lbs to have them do it,
    if your not sure how to, it should stop the creaking, and if your
    pedals have reflectors, those get loose and make a little creak noise.

    Those are two things can make ppl think there is something wrong with
    their hub or something like that, but they are both easy fixes, just
    tighten the spokes and\or take off relectors =p

    right, i should've known it'd be something stupid like that. i don't
    have reflectors, so it'll be tightening them. is it easy to do, or is
    the right toolage required? i might try and tune them to my piano while
    i'm at it... ¬_¬

    anyway, thanks for putting my mind to rest.
