    Probably a pedal bearing. Check chainring bolts, crank bolts and ride it to make sure your crank isn't just hitting your front derailleur cage first. Then either overhaul or replace your pedals or...

    If you put a fork like that on a steamroller the top tube would slope the other way. The stock fork has a lot of axle to crown millimetres.
