There are a couple of possibilities. 1st, the rear wheel is not correctly pulled back and the tension on the chain is low. 2nd, your chain needs oil. If this is the case, I may suggest that you use synthetic motor oil used for car engines. This types of oil really sticks to the metal.

How do I stop the squeaking noise when pedaling the bike or using the elliptical option? I've tried lubrication. Only getting worse.


Have you lubricated all moving parts. Wheel bearings Chain and sprockets? Are there fenders if so are they a little loose?. Anything that is loose will vibrate and make a noise. Even dry pedals will make a noise. Crank also.Just a thought.

What is causing a creaking, squeaky noise to come from the right pedal on my sc5?


Your transmission chain and reduction pulley, and or step chain need to be checked.

It could just be the transmission chain is on just a little too tight, causing the creaking or that the step chain/s just need a little grease on them (which is likely the culprit to any creaking).

Noise and rough pedaling from main crank


not knowing if this is a single speed or multispeed bike, this could be several different things and a proper analysis by a mechanic at your local bike shop is what is needed.
It could be that the chain is too tight, it could be the derailleurs are out of adjustment and the chain is skipping between gears or rubbing on the derailleurs. It could be a bottom bracket out of adjustment and the bearings are loose and making the noise. It could be a loose bottom bracket shell in an aluminum frame make creaking noises.

Huffy boys bike makes clicking noise


does it make the "clicking" noise when coasting, pedaling or both? If it is only when pedaling, check to make sure the cranks are not rubbing on a chain guard or hitting the frame, if not then the chain is probably too tight and it is the gear cog teeth meshing with the tight chain. Loosen the rear axle nuts and slide the rear wheel forward slightly, this should take care of it. If the noise happens while coasting then one of the wheels could be rubbing on the frame intermittently, or the hub bearings could be too tight (also making it difficult for small legs to pedal) and the bearings are crushed and flattening making the "clicking" noise as they are being ground up.

The pedal makes a clicking noise


If it's a fairly new pedal, I would remove them and try a different set of pedals to make sure that it definitely is the pedal. Assuming the different set doesn't click, then you may have a warranty issue. If the bike is still clicking, you may have to check the crank and bottom bracket next. The tough thing about clicking noises in the bottom bracket area is that there are a lot of parts that can be causing it and you just have to eliminate them one by one.

There is a grinding noise when I change into the higher gears. Sounds like the chain is slipping, even when I am pedaling. The lower gears are smooth.


Only YOU can locate (by ear) the source of the noise.

Surf the web for "grinding noise when pedaling" and find the solution or problem description that best fits your symptom, then follow it. It could be just the chain rubbing the derailleur cage or something else.

Where should the Zoom G1X go in a pedal chain?


From an electrical engineering standpoint, an expression or volume pedal should be near the end of the chain so that the other effects don't try to process very weak signals when the volume is very low.

This gives better signal to noise ratio.

I have a Campy cassette set on my Cannondale. Lately, there has been an intermittent clicking noise coming from the rear wheel when pedaling. Nothing appears to be hitting the wheel. Also, at speeds above...


Clicking noises are commonly bearing problems but may occasionally be loose pedal cranks. If rear cassette isn't free wheeling properly sounds like a free wheel bearing is defective. I don't know your Campy - mine are all Shimano - but you should be able to replace the free wheel assembly OK as a separate service item. Mind you if it's of an age to demolish a bearing you should also be checking the gear teeth and chain for wear.

The treshold needs to be turned all the way up in order to reduce noise..i thought that i must be set in a 9 o'clock position based on the reveiews in youtube.


Yes. Very much so. The noise reduction should be the very last pedal, of course. Try to even plug your chain in a different outlet than the one your amp (or if recording to a computer, different than the computer outlet). If you have a particularly loud distortion, have it be the last one before the noise reduction pedal.
