I have previously posted about this issue before... but this time things are different
I have consulted sheldon brown's page here on creaks/clicks/clunks
It is a noise (about 1-3 quick clicks) that happens every crank revolution.. when i pedal really hard, it clicks more (3 clicks)... when i pedal slowly, it clicks 1-2 times... when i dont exert force and just let it coast downhill, sometimes it'll click once, sometimes not at all.
I have eliminated the possibility of it being wheel related because it definitely happens once per crank revolution...
Pedals are tight, greased, not loose at all.
The crank bolts are definitely properly tightened into the bottom bracket spindle.
chainring bolts are on tight and good...
bottom bracket cups are definitely tightened as they should be (pretty much how everyone recommended that I installed them, drive side tightened to about 25 foot pounds, non drive side just tightened in as far as you can with your hands, maybe an extra few twists... I even went as far as to replace my bottom bracket.. no improvement in the noise...
I doubt there are problems with all my pedals, I've dried some different pedals and the noise persists.
I don't think it's a saddle problem... I took off the seatpost and saddle and rode and the noise is still there. I don't think it's a handlebar problem either... I put 0 pressure on the handlebars (ride with no hands) and the noise still persists. I can feel a slight vibration in my crankset when it clicks, so I'm pretty sure it's coming from there.
I'm sure it's not something dumb like my shoelaces or something either... wear laceless shoes and still the same thing as well...
Now I'm thinking... is something wrong with my crank arms/chainring???
