Road Bike Clicking
So I by no means am a bike mechanic, all I know is the basics of putting a bike together and fixing flats/installing new tubes.
So on my winter beater(a road bike), last week I was riding through rain and hail and when I came home I wiped her down and all was well. Next time I went riding, till the current, there is this constant clicking sound every time I pedal, sounds like its coming from the cassete, or maybe the derailer. I know its somewhere in that back region. It almost like a slight grinding noise type of a clicking. Its really annoying, also theres little high pitched squeeks as I pedal(kind of like those cliche bike noises) and whenever I ride, I feel like im riding a squeeky piece of junk.
Anyone know where this squeeking and clicking could come from, and how to fix it?
Thank you in advance.
