plastic spoke protector cannot be installed in such a way that it would cause enough friction to cause that kind of frame-resonating WHRRRR sound... The reason the noise is not heard when the cranks are spinning is because the wheel was not spinning fast enough for you to hear the dry bearings. Plastic on steel is fairly quiet in comparison,

I'm guessing it's freehub bearings that lack the grease, when pedalling they are engaged and not even spinning...

I am buying a bike with a maxxis DTH, is it any good for a bit looser dirt, on the damp side, mixed with the very occasional hard pack? If not what's a good light DJ tire?

I've always used small block 8's, some people hate on them pretty hard but I love them!
