Subject: [CR]OFF TOPIC: tinkling sound repair problem: PLEASE HELP

dear everybody,

I have a really really annoying repair problem that has me vexed. it is on a non-classic bike that I won't mention that begins with the letter "L" (PLEASE don't anybody say "what did you expect, buying a new bike that is sort of brushed silvery color that starts with the letter 'L'?")--ANYWAY

it makes a tinkling sound--erratic, here and there, almost always under stress or load (on hills and sprints) and is getting worse. we have tried: lubing the bottom bracket, checking the cables, changing the chain rings, truing the wheels, etc--STILL, that pesky almost shoe lace-in-the-spokes sound that just won't go away.

there is a wonderful brain trust here--any ideas anybody?

thanks for listening. sorry about the L word.
