Actually, I think I "fixed" it. :/
When I removed the wheel to check it out I found nothing out of the
ordinary. I need a brake job soon, but no broken parts, loose bolts, worn
shinny areas, etc. In the week since I reinstalled my wheel I haven't heard
the noise once. Riddle me that Batman!?!?
My only thought is that somehow the wheel got put back on slightly
crooked/offsides and when I r&r'd it it straightened back out. I know,
crazy! The lugs were not loose and I couldn't shake the tire or anything.
I guess this just gets chalked up in the weird category.
