    Crank noise

    Anyone have an idea why my crank makes a click - tends to be in larger rings and is about at the top of the cycle on my right leg (dominate leg). Tried to tighten crank a bit - maybe it helped a bit, not sure.

    could be the crank hitting the front derailleur?

    loose bottom bracket?

    there's a bazillion other possible reasons

    Swap pedals out first. Could also be seatpost, something your hitting with your feet on rotation. A million things.

    I once had a click which turned out to be the pump rubbing on the bottle cage bolts on the down tube!
