I found different brand front tyres (tires?) make a difference to the noise emanating from the front of the bike. The original Anakee 3's were particularly noisy. I am now running Michelin Pilot Road 4 Trail and they are considerably quieter. I agree with the posts in regards wearing ear plugs to make it into the perfect bike!!! The noise in 64,000 kilometres has not changed ...
