Cleaned my bike last night after a nice ride(Just the drive train). Went out today and it is clicking. It only does it when i apply pressure on the left pedal. You know like going up hill. Any helpful advice?
how frequent is the clicking? if it's once per revolution of the crank, check the end of your front der. cable and make sure tha crank isn't hitting it. if it's constant, rapid clicking, your der is out of adjustment, if it's once every two revolutions of the crank, sometimes more, sometimes less, it's a problem with your chain.
Not to hijack but I am having the same issues..creak in the BB and a little play in the cranks due to a worn BB. I am also looking for a good Crank and BB that will hold up for more than a year. I am light but tend to beat on things pretty hard. Suggestions? Bike is an Iron Horse MKIII. Rigt now I am leaning towards an 08 XT
