    click on pedals

    Sorry one more question beside my other thread ...
    My pedals have a click on the left pedal upswing, it is a noticeable noise and feeling that feels like its getting stuck for a second. This is happening on all gears. What could this be caused by?

    Bad bearings, maybe. How many miles on the pedals?

    its a one month old bike, maybe 100 miles.... I think i may have a right leg dominance, where I use my right leg a lot more than my left, so I put more weight on the right side than the left. Maybe I bent something by doing that?
    Are the bearings something I can fix myself? I don't mind learning if it is something that I can fix with normal tools

    One month old, I'd take back to the LBS. Its still under warranty, and right leg dominance is not going to wear out a pedal in a month. Pedals should be work perfectly for a long time.
