On the way to work this morning my Nighthawk decided to start giving me this loud whine coming from what I guess is the front wheel.
It did it on the way back, too.
The loud whine starts at maybe 45 mph and stays till I’m going really slow. I thought maybe it was the brakes (since I’m missing that spring) but then it should stop when I apply the brakes and it would have been noisy the last two days.
But when I was almost home I had a scary moment. It felt like something had gotten between the wheel and the fender. I heard something with the plastic. So I pulled over to investigate and of course I found nothing.
I tried to get going again but this time the headlight wouldn’t turn on. It wasn’t the fuse and I’m not sure what else it might be since the light came on again after I punished the bike enough. Not sure. I’ll need to figure that one out.
On top of everything else, the speedometer light burned out.
I have an insane amount of repairs to do before tomorrow’s ride. I’m getting up very early to try and address them.
