I'll try to describe this the best I can. I get this strange gripping sound when standing up and pedalling from the front wheel. It sounds like the tyre is gripping on the edge if that makes sense. I'm not swinging the bike left to right that much, it mainly started when I put on a new gator skin. I checked the hub bearings and they are ok. I opened up the front brake caliper all the way with enough room to drive a truck and it still happens. The headset has no play in it. Any ideas ?
The wheel is a 28h 2x Kinlin Xr270 and I weigh 80 kgs. It's steel soma smoothie frame with a reynolds ouza carbon fork. There is no wear in the fork arch so I don think the wheel is rubbing the inside of the fork
