Funny noise

I just bought a second hand kris holm unicycle! its pretty cool and is a really nice ride
It makes this funny noise when riding tho, think its the spokes ribbing past eachother where they cross as tried moving them and it made that noise. Is there any way to sort this? can u tighten the spokes?
any help would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. started a month or so ago and love it

hey, I had the same problem with my KH. I was advised to wax the spoke intersections, but i didnt have any wax, so used petroleum jelly/vaseline which worked well. Though I think in time the noise will go away.

here's the thread:
