    Guide to silencing bike noises

    Was browsing around and found this guide for fixing practically every bike noise possible and thought I would share. Nothing bothers me more than noises I can't seem to get rid of.

    Nice resource....Dude, I am the worst and figuring out noises. I had this clicking noise that wouldn't go away on pedaling. I finally just replaced the BB, the Look pedals and got a new chain. (granted the chain was way overdue and the pedals were a little ratty....anyway, noise is gone along with about $150.

    I figured out the secret to fixing bike noises a long time ago. It's called an iPod.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    I used that resource a couple months ago when I had what sounded like a click in the bottom bracket. After checking, greasing and re-tightening, it wouldn't go away. One of the suggestions on that site was to check the derailleur hanger screws. Sure enough, they were loose. I probably would have never thought to check those if it wasn't for that guy...
