Loud noise when pedaling. Stops when brakes are applied. Bike is brand new. Sounds like it's coming from the wheel.

    Need more info like have you checked the brake caliper (things with the rubber on them to stop the wheel)? Put the bike up on a stand and recreate and I'm sure you'll find it it's something simple I'm sure.

Take the bike into you local bike shop to have properly diagnosed. This one has too many variables to guess and if something is broken or even just misaligned it could cause a problem that will result in serious injury. Your local bike shop will be able to help you best on this one, as someone really needs to see and hear the problem.

I have a 2006 f-250, i have a grinding noise that sounds like it is coming from the rear wheels, but when i apply the brakes it stops. what could this be?


Are your brake pads worn? They will have a small metal tab on one of the pads on each side. These are referred to squeeker tabs. They let you know when your pads are worn enough to need changed before you get metal to metal part failure. They are designed to barely scrape against the rotor when the brakes are not applied and make an annoying noise. I would look again and make sure all rear pads are in good shape. If they are you might clean the brakes, sometimes a piece of dirt or debris can make the same noise. If you have one pad that is worn more than the rest make sure you clean and grease the caliper slide pins when you change the pads. Actually, you always want to make sure you clean and grease the slides when you do a brake job.

Metal on metal noise when driving. Sounds like brake noise when brake pads are in need of replacement. Sound goes away when the brake is applied. Car only has 20,000 miles on it (2006).


Hello tgiro7: My name is Roger and I will help with your question. The fact the noise goes away when stepping on the brake pedal says the problem most likely is in the brake area. The pads could be worn out even at 20,000 miles.If the noise sounds like it comes from the front remove the wheels and check the front pads. If the pads are bad most likely the rotors are also bad.Same would apply if the noise emits from the rear. When you have the wheels off check to make sure the calipers will slide in and out on the mount pins. Should they be stuck on binding the pads will wear excessively and prematurely fail. The calipers must move freely on the pins. If you drive with your left foot on the brake pedal? The amount of pressure required to apply the brakes and not stop the vehicle is 1 to 2 pounds of pressure. Wont turn on the brake lights but will put pressure on the calipers. This in turn will wear out the brake pads. Another thing to look at would be an out of adjustment brake switch. Reach down and grab hold of the brake pedal. Give a firm tug on the pedal. Should you feel the pedal give and hear a click or two the switch was set to deep and holding the brakes on.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

2008 siverado. Front-end humming. Sounds like extremely loud tire pattern noise coming from left-front wheel area, noise stops when i turn the steering wheel to the right. replaced tire with no results.


it is your wheel bearing. the bearing is a sealed unit so you replace the hub assembly. remove wheel,caliper,brake rotor.if it is 4x4 loosen axle nut. there are three 15mm bolts on back side of spindle remove these and slide hub out replace with new one. most hubs come with new wheel speed sensor so remove harness from connectors or if no new one remove the screw holding it in place to hub and slide out.
