    The mysterious clicking noise...

    About a year ago, I switched from coaster brake wheels on my Mosh Bmx to riding brakeless with a freewheel hub. Ever since, my life has been HELL. At the bottom of every stroke, there is a loud clicking noise that sounds like my bike being hit by a screwdriver or something, and i can feel the click on my feet. I've changed the freewheel, then the bearings in the crank, then the chainwheel, then the back wheel. I basically have replaced everything on the back of the bike to no good effect.

    Can someone tell me what might be causing this? I checked the chain but it seems not to be worn. I will replace that if anyone thinks it will help.

    Thanks,
    Crash
    Oh noes!

    Check your crank arms. My friend has crank arms that were a little bit stripped and they clicked.

    I just tried an experiment. I took my back wheel off and put it on my other bike.

    It seems to be out of true, and feels like theres something wrong in the freewheel.

    So i guess this means I'll have to either go buy a new bike or a new cassette wheelset...

    Reccomendations?
    Oh noes!

    Get your wheel trued and buy a new freewheel. Will cost the least.
