Standing on both pedals creates a popping noise?
I've had heaps of these issues. I ended up buying a whole toolkit, cause you need like 3 tools to take off the bottom bracket and its nearly cheaper to buy a whole toolkit.
On my old tiagra road bike, I got a click per rotation or maybe two per rotation I don't remember. Opening the bottom bracket, greasing and tightening everything back up got rid of the problem.
Then the bike I currently ride, I was hearing clicking on the right. I took apart the bottom bracket and did the same but this time, it didn't help. It ended up being the crappy pedals, and I got some shimano.
Today I was thinking I was having the same problems. It was frustrating me majorly. Turned out to be the little wire end from my front derailleur banging on my frame. So annoying!!
...Anyway I think the best thing is to buy a toolkit and learn to open up your bottom bracket. Its really worth it. You'll never regret spending some money on tools and discovering the simple mechanisms that hold your bike together.
