After a long winter storage, I would strongly suggest placing small pieces of roquefort in a barrier around your bike, then when the little SOB's come out squeaking from your rear wheel, nail them with a 5 lb hammer
Welcome to our small, insane forum.
A squeaky wheel can have many causes, running the gamut from tire inflation, tire rubbing, bearings, dust in the brakes, etc. Given the small amount of information you've provided, it's impossible to narrow anything down at this point. Does it squeak all the time? Only when brakes are applied? Does the squeak moderate when you apply and release the brake? Have you been operating the bike a long time with the squeak or did it just begin? Do you operate on dusty/gravel roads?
LinerDave, DieselDave, Bevo and some of the other talented wrenches will be along shortly to offer other thoughts.
In the meantime, beware Bevo's poll!!!
