Joey the noise you are describing is EXACTLY what my bike did after the first time the wheel came off for a tire change. It was definitely a rubbing noise, sounded metal on metal like a rasping? Here is an important question - is the frequency of the sound directly related to RPM of the wheel itself. Remember the belt will go around once while the wheel goes around several times. If the frequency of the sound is with the rotation of the wheel then at least in my case is was the Cushing. I INSISTED they pull the wheel off and grease the the heck out of the cushing AND align the wheel right AND tension the belt correctly and after 2 weeks of squeak squeak squeak it went away and has been gone for 4,500 miles. Good luck, I hope you get it figured out but if you haven't had them check the cushing I highly reccommend it, can't hurt.
