clicking when i pedal

I always get a horrible clicking from my bike, but only when i pedal, I can roll without a sound but when that pedal turns the clicking is back and is very annoying. If you have a solution please e-mail me at [email protected] (remove NOSPAM) or reply to this message, thanks

Can't help you with your bike problem. But, can you explain how the NOSPAM works?

nospam

some people use scripts that get email address out of posts and replies on message forums and sell them email address to companies that innondate you with spam, so if they clock my email address they'll send spam to [email protected] instead of my proper address

How do you set your email up to do that?

When you set up your return email address on a message board such as this one, you enter the "no spam" part so it automatically shows up.

The spammers aren't dummies (ba$tards, yes; dummies, no) so they can write code to delete the NoSpam string and still get your email address. The trick is to vary it so a human can figure it out, but a slicer/dicer program cannot, so [email protected] becomes

[email protected]_OispS_P_A_M.com
[email protected]
etc.

One of your cranks me be loose, it may not feel loose but check both with a wrench and make sure they are tight. The bolt on the left one should have a reverse thread on it. You might have to pry off a dust cover to get to the bolt, also if your bottom bracket has tapered axle shafts the crank may be too worn to fully tighten. It could also be your bottom bracket may need to be overhauled, ever wash your bike with a pressure washer?
Good Luck,
Bryan

thanks for your reply bryan,
I do wash my bike with a pressure washer, every month or so. Would that be the problem, will check my bolts are tightened tonight.

Wow, good catch

The pressure washer may have blasted all the grease out of the bottom bracket. Good catch, Juhl!

You may have also worn down a bearing or two if you blew out the grease. Make sure you have all that you need if they aren't encased.

If you have a cartridge bottom bracket then chances are you would not have blown the grease out. However if it is a one piece crank or an old school b.b then a lack of grease would do it. Also your pedals can create a noise when loose or worn out. If running a tapered spindle on a b.b and the clicking sound occurs then the seat of the crank arms may be loose and in need of tightening like previoulsy suggested, or they crank arms are worn out. Also steel cupped b.b in a aluminum b.b shell will creak a solution can be from greasing the b.b cup threads or teflon tape on them.
Anyways I would suggest that you cease from wahing the bike in the manner you do and switch to a sponge and soapy water. Never rinse with a hose or pressure washer. It is very bad for the components.
