Clicking noise

Hi. I own a 2017 Specialized Roubaix SL4 Sport which I bought NOS earlier this year. It uses the 105 5800 11 speed 11-32t derailleurs and shifters and Praxis cranks and BB.

Iím having an issue with a sporadic clicking sound when pedaling. It doesnít seem to be related to the gear Iím in and I just had the dealer adjust the derailleurs. They shift perfectly and thereís no chain rub.

Any thoughts on where this clicking is coming from?

Is the noise synchronized with your pedal cadence, or wheel speed? Try swapping your pedals for a known-quiet set, preferably platform type to eliminate shoe and cleat noise. Make certain that your crank is not ticking against the front derailleur wire (this may change with front gear) or shoelace aglet.

Its not the pedals. Shimano Ultegra carbon. Shoes donít have laces. Iíll look at the derailleur wire. Thanks for the suggestions.

I recently had a clicking sound, and it came at the same point in the revolution and only under power. That is, if I just let my pedal go around without applying down force, no click. On the advice of several other threads, I took my pedals off, degreased them and then regreased them. Clicking noise solved.

I know you've said it's not the pedals, but it's an easy process just to be sure.

Might be the seat post hitting the inside of the seat tube or the seat rails moving slightly in the seat clamp. I've never had either but have seen it them as issues on this forum in the past. Good luck finding the source of the noise
