I am clicking every were on my Forza. The crank on the left side clicks when it is in the 10 to 11 o clock position. Only when pressure is pushed on the crank not when coasting or pushed by the wind going down a hill etc. The click is very loud, and I can feel a small vibration through the pedal. Then the rear wheel that makes a clicking sound when it is pushed by hand as if it was to be coasting. It got wet does the hub need a re-pack?

I tried removing the chain and spin the crank no dice. I spun the pedals to see if I heard any grinding in the pedal no go

If you can actually feel vibration through the pedal it's probably the bb. Softpedal the cranks backwards while loading one pedal or the other and see if you feel anything.

If they have pinch bolts on the crank arm try tightening those. My FSA ISIS style cranks have pinchbolts on the left arm and I was getting a click type feeling through the pedal, I found the pinch botls to be loose.

Were would these pinch bolts be on the crank. If it was the bb that was having a problem then it would need to be replaced hopefully under warranty right? I tried the soft pedal on the left side it doesn't click that loud or not at all

Well it is a clicking extravaganza when it comes to my bike. The rear wheel makes a clicking sound, the brake cable rubs against the frame and makes a noise. The crank is making this obnoxious knocking/clicking noise. This all happened on a 65 mile ride yesterday argh
