your bottom bracket lug might need refacing.

i had the same problem, changed from caged to uncaged bearings, new cups, new spindle, same thing.

measured the BB and found that it was off by 0.030"

that is almost 1/32" of an inch. it was like the BB never got refaced at the frame factory, they just sent it out raw.

many people will tell you that this makes no difference.

don't listen to them.

after refacing the BB, i have no more slop and no more noise.

one clue that you need a reface is that the BB will be sloppy at one point of revolution, and tight at another.

yours might be the freewheel.

does the noise make one klunk per stroke, ore multiple klunks per stroke?
