Yes, but only YOU can determine which. Has the bike been maintained well so the drivetrain isn't worn out?

Does it do it in all gears or just some, like the one(s) you use the most?

Go here and look at the B-Screw adjustment...

If the pulleys are too close to the cassette you'll feel clicking. Or if your chosen gear combination is such that the derailleur can't take up the chain slack.

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.

Front crank sprocket clicking on bycycle, when I pedal the front crank sprocket clicks, it isn't the pedals.


make sure all sprocket bolts are tight.
check chain to make sure you have all rollers between links are there.this can make a clicking noise or skip teeth if one is missing when you pedal.
if you feel clicking in the pedals (even if you think it isnt the pedals),then it could be your bottom bracket bearing gone.
put one pedal towards the floor and stand on it.did it click?then try the other pedal.if you got it to click then your bottom bracket is loose

When peddling bike seems to try to shift gears


There may be some chain links that do not move freely. turn the pedal slowly backwards and check for siezed links, as it goes through the deraileur.

A worn chain can do this as well, unfortunately you usually have to change the chain and sprocket cluster as a pair. If you just put a new chain on a similar problem can occur.

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.

2009 Hyundai Sonata-clicking noise at brake pedal,brakes applied


This is not a rich mans car so its normal. Your hearing the solinod that lets you take the car out of park after the brake is depressed so the car can't be put in gear unless the brake is on. If the noise bothers you the soliniod can be found and wrapped in insulation like a rich mans car them you can ride on feeling like a rich man too. ( the Beatles sang that a long time ago) and its still true today.

I'm new to bike riding, it's only been a couple of months. I really don't know how to explain my problem, other than when I'm riding (downhill, uphill, anywhere), it feels like the bike is giving out when...


By "giving out" do you mean it feels like not all the power generated by your legs is getting to the rear wheel? This can be caused by a chain that need oiling, pedals that stick or don't turn easily, badly adjusted gear set (that doesn't have the chain riding in the middle of each gear, but off to one side or the other). Do you notice any chattering or scraping noises when you ride?
Also, make sure your seat is adjusted correctly. To get full power, you leg should be almost straight when you are sitting on the bike and the pedal is at the bottom of the stroke. If not, raise the seat until you can just touch the pavement when the bike is tilted (as at a stoplight). Also, make sure the tires are inflated correctly. Overly soft tires take more work to get to your destination.

Weird noise on my bmx bike


It sounds like you have cracked or broken one or both sealed cartridge bearings if thats what your bike has. If it has ball bearings in races they might be broken. Try loosening your rear wheel enough to take the chain off and then turn your crank. See if theres a funny noise or if it feels a little weird when its turning. If you broke a pedal bearing you should be able to tell just by carefully turning each pedal with your fingers and seeing what it feels like. In any case unless you have the tools to repair it you will have to take it in and get it repaired.
