Harmonic tone coming from rear end
Ok this is a puzzler. New tires about 2 weeks ago. Michelin Anakee 3. At 59-65 MPH i can hear a distinct tone or ringing. It sounds like a classroom tone from high school when class is over. It goes away outside of the speed range. It could be tires, but it actually sounds like the noise a good wine glass makes when you rub a wet finger on the rim to make it ring. 7200 miles on the bike. Everything free wheels fine on the stand. Even adjustment on both sides of the axle. Anyone else out there hear this? My first thought is tires, but also thought about wheel bearings or brake rotor? But everything else seems good. Nothing binding, hot or rough when checked after a ride. Does it cold or warm.
