Clicking noise front wheel

I am relatively new to biking but am liking it loads. Recently went out on a ride and the front wheel started clicking. Very annoying but canít seem to locate the exact source of the clicks. It happens continually while bike is in motion both while freewheeling and while peddling. It only happens while Iím on the bike actually riding it. No clicks at any other time. Any suggestions as the possible problem would be very much appreciated. Thanks in anticipation guys.

Could be the hub bearings going bad.

Also, if your front wheel has a plastic reflector attached to the spokes, it can also be a bit loose and clicking.

On my bike I've had this happen in the past and it's been a need for lubrication of

  • spoke nipple/rim interface (mainly)
