It's funny but I fixed a flat then had a vey annoying tick withthe pedals at 11 oclock every rev only on a 6% climb.
I went through eveything only to find that the cassette lockring slightly loosened when I removed the rear wheel for a repair. Took me about 2 weeks to find it.
I thik it may have worked loose during riding but not allowed to mave as it was clamped in the rear. Once I removed the wheel, it was allowed to move. Now when I remove the rear wheel for a repair, I always check the ring to make sure it's secure. It's a SRAM $45 model. I never had that issue with a Shimano. But now that I know, no biggie.
Also make sure you centered the wheel vs the brake calipers. A slight brushing sound may be the brakes rubbing aginst the pads. Especially if the wheel is a bit out of true.
ANothe thing, if you are in the lowest gear of the rear cassette, make sur eyour rear derailleur cage is not slightly hitting the spokes. I had one do that, Adjusted the limit screws and check to make sure the cage of the derailleur is not bent inward.
