Purchased a Specialized Sirrus base model 1 week ago & after about 17 miles it developed a clicking noise\feeling in the left pedal.
1. Is this something specialized shoulld warranty?
2. Should I go through Specialized or LBS (LBS is about 35 miles away)?
3. Or should I upgrade to new pedals? Through the search function, I find the MKS Sylvan Touring pedals are highly recommended.
Call your LBS ahead and tell them what it is doing and I bet they make it right and might give you an idea to check if something is loose. It may not be the pedal making the clicking noise. Let us know what it was when you get it taken care of b/c I have a Sirrus too that I just bought a week ago and if I wouldn't mind knowing in case I encounter the same noise. Any issues I ever had with any of my Specialized bikes were taken care of by the LBS without any need to contact Specialized. Good Luck.
Just make sure it's not the kick stand or a length of cable that is moving in the path of your crank. That happened to me when I first bought my Sirrus Sport last year. If that isn't the problem then go thought the LBS you got it from
I bought a Trek 7.5FX last June. Within a month one of the pedals started making a clicking noise with every revolution. The LBS replaced these pedals. Within the last month both pedals are now making clicking noises. I think the problem is poorly made pedals.
Check the length of excess cable on your front derailleur. I once had a one inch section of excess cable that was just long enough to hit the crank arms (it sounded like it was coming from the pedals too). I pushed the excess cable back slightly so it wouldn't make contact w/ any moving parts and the clicking sound disappeared.
