    lbs cant find it after a quick look. i cant find it. but i recently noted that it only happens on my down stroke.
    if your bottom bracket was broken would it click when power is applied or somthing? cause i hate when there is a noise i dont know what where its from.

    edit: its a very high picthed "ping" like if you took the end of a cable and sprung it into the frame kinda

    1) is the cable end crimp from your FD hitting your crank? Hmm? Is it??

    2) If not, start here:

    What about BB flex under pressure? Could then be your chain rubbing the inner side of the Front Derailleur.

    Similar thing was happening to me recently. I originally suspected the BB.

    I spoke to my LBS and they suggested looking at the chain ring bolts. They were right. I took my chain ring apart, put a thin smear of grease on the surfaces (not the threads) and re-assembled. Now the noise is gone.

    I had a similar pinging, only on the downstroke when pushing hard, turned out I had a spoke problem.

    Your chain ring bolts are probably loose. You don't need to take anything apart just tighten the nuts and hit them with a LITTLE lock tight.

    I had a similar problem that was caused by the spokes rubbing against each other where they cross. I bit of chain lube at each cross fixed it.

    Check the spoke tension. I just did a roadside fix on my last club ride...Guy's bike was making a strange noise, wouldn't make it in the stand at the shop. New bike, under 100 miles on it, I tightened all the spokes in the rear wheel 1/4 turn, and the noise is gone. Low spoke tension from the factory, or it loosened up from riding, I'll keep an eye on it.
