The mysterious 'Bottom Bracket Click' solved!

Greetings,

I have been going crazy recently because of a click I occasionally heard that sounded like it was coming from the left side of the bottom bracket. It only happened when I was pedaling, and always when my left leg was on the downstroke. I couldn't find it with the bike on the stand, and the sporadic nature of the sound was driving me nuts (or more nuts). I even asked a co-worker to ride the bike to help me pin point it. He didn't hear it at all!

Well to make a long story short, it turned out to be a click in my knee!!!!!

Arrgghh, getting old is the pits!

Hmm, I wonder if White Lightning would work on my knee?

Regards,

Buzz

hahahaaa. it's funny , but it's also said . Have you considered seeing a doctor? I donít think itís natural for a knee to clickÖ.

My knee's always had a click, proabably from too much soccer when I was younger. Still works just fine.

Maybe my "headset creak" is really just my head creaking....

look into the click. most often, it means you have a tear in the meniscus. best have that looked at. the click can turn into agonizing pain.

heres what i read and have experienced on knee-clicking/noise.......if it hurts get it checked, soon!....if it doesnt hurt, just makes noise, no biggie....still might want to get it checked out if it has never happened before... sometimes one of my knees will click on and off, its always been like that since i had it operated on when i was younger.

My knees use to click all the time. I went to check them out, but doctor basically said that it's was due to my growth. However the knees didn't stop until I got serious with the bike. In my case it was a cure.
