Anyone else who got one of these noticed an annoying squeek whilst riding? I bought 2 of these and put one on a custom built wheelset with an Si lefty and one on a set of Crossmax SLRs. Both have developed this annoying squeek. Wondering whether I have done something stupid or whether there is something wrong?

Thanks.

I just put together a new Rize with Mavic wheels.:thumbsup: At slow speeds it sounds like an old door creaking!? I pot some lube on bearing, but it could also be brakes or 14 inches of snow we have here.

I love snow, but I also want to ride my new bike.:madman:

I had same squeek. It is the o-ring that needs to be lubricated. A Cannondael mechanic fixed it for me at one of my races last year.

My guess would be the o-ring as well. In good conditions I remove the o-ring.
I can't believe how much drag it creates. Some lube would reduce the drag also
but I just remove it. Our bolt/cap combo actually has less crush on the o-ring than
the stock cannondale units in order to reduce drag but still there is a surprising amount
of drag.
