Oh, I noticed the past few rides that my rear wheel makes a quiet but audible pinging sound under load. Silent when coasting or pedaling at Z2 or less.It sounds like the spokes are shifting slightly where they overlap, and I can reproduce a similar sound if I manually move the spokes where they cross.

The tension and trueness of the wheel is indeed off a bit, so my best guess is that's WHY the sounds are happening. I suppose I should put a tiny drop of oil at each junction for now.
