    I had the same problem before i changed from the cheap freewheel my bike came with to the white industries one i have now. When i pedaled i had this clicking/ticking sound. I thought it was my bottom bracket. I changed out my freewheel for other reasons, and low and behold the sound hasnt returned. Not saying thats the case, but its a personal experience. Might want to try checking in the mechanics section.

    Bottom bracket, crank arm, pedal spindle, chainring bolt, or something completely unrelated in another area of the bike. Tell us more about your bike.

    are you the guy that other guy who posted here a few times flipped his bike to?
    he didn't seem like he really knew what he was doing & even posted that he had a ticking coming from the chain(?) so you might want to have that thing checked thoroughly by someone knowledgeable.
    definitely try riding it fixed 1st to find out if it is a bad freewheel.
    good luck...

    I had the same problem on my bike. No noise on fixed, but cracking/popping noise on ss. The freewheel I have on the bike is just the stock one from bikesdirect and I attributed the problem to just a POS freewheel.

    My solution: Don't use the freewheel side of the wheel anymore.

    Usual suspects: tight chain or POS freewheel.

    If you loosen your previously too tight chain and still have noise, you have broken your POS freewheel. Get a new, non-POS freewheel and make sure you still have a bit of play in the chain at the tightest point while you are rotating the crank, or risk taking out your new awesome freewheel in short order.
    I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.

    I had a mystery click once that turned out to be my pants catching on a piece of excess brake cable and pinging the ferule at the end of it against the frame. Felt like an idiot when I finally figured it out after a month of looking.
    Ride lots, have fun, skid often!
