Help diagnose this click/clunk

Road bike, standard setup. Every 3-4 pedal strokes, in every gear, there is a clunk/click that reverberates through the crank arms so that I feel it in both feet. I tightend the crank arm bolts, but no difference. I put it in the trainer and listened closely, and it sounded like it was coming from the cassette.

I'm currently giving the whole drive train a good cleaning, any ideas if that doesn't work?

Stiff link in the chain? Spin it slowly backwards while looking at the rear derailleur pulleys. See if there's a kink that goes through.
