Odds are its not a pedal like that other dude said...and if ure not really sure where its comin from its hard to say but its prob u cracked ure axle or broke your bearing casing on the back hub near the back sprocket..pedals dont normally if ever make a cracking noise...also check the back axel for broken or bent teeth

no its not really like a defined cracking its like a poping but muffled its really hard to explain i do think its somthing inside the crank case cuz it ususally does it when i pedal or i and coasting really fast

Hard to say. Which part of the bike got slammed? There could potentially be alot of things. Such as a broken retainer in the bottom bracket. This would lead to the bearings fallng out and quite possibly getting ground up. It could be a bent or broken axle, but you could check that by moving the wheels side to side to see if there is any sloppy movement in them, and they do not roll true. You man have bent your chain. You may have damaged the headset, or cracked the frame somewhere. Look for chipped paint at the welds for that. You could have knocked a wheel out of true that is rubbing the stays on the frame or hitting the brakes at a weird angle. You also could have damaged the races on the hubs itself if the pegs slammed hard enough to flex, bend, or break the axle and the bearings in the hubs are getting chewed up. Just do a check, and if you cannot find anything, then go to your LBS and have them check it.

ok ill try to do this in order it slammed like right on the side just like flat no one part took and extra amount of beating; i dont think any bearings are falling out becuse everything is smooth still it just makes that noise and everything spins fine; yes there is a little bit of slop in the back tire ( it moves side to side a little bit ) but its nothing really noticibale and they still ride straight ; no chiped paint at the welds ; it isnt the wheel rubbing i can tell ya that ;

ok does that info help? if it does witch i dont think it will but if it does please reply

Well then given what you said, nothing mechanical seems to be wrong. Check and see if anything is bent, I mean ANYTHING. If not then you are good to go.
