    pedaling noise, please help.

    hi, i have a road bike and had a problem before w/ clicking noises...i read around and someone suggested taking out my pedals and cleaning them and rescrewing them on. problem fixed, i guess there was dirt in the thread?

    well now its not the problem, i took it off again for cleaning again and when i ride the right pedal has a soft bump every cycle. i rode that for 25 miles, nothing happened but the bump i felt was still there (its a subtle bump but very annoying and its not loud at all, u really have to listen but feeling it on my foot is obvious)

    do you think when i screwed the pedals on i torqued it too much?(by hand) there isnt anyway i could have bent the pedals /thread is there?

    i believe my entire bike is made of aluminum. its a dawes lightning 1000, model 2006.

    thank you for any advice or suggestions. i really appreciate it.
    yeeha! lets go biking!

    Does the pedal feel loose to you if you wiggle it by hand while off the bike? Your bearings could be worn out.
