I hear a clicking noise when I ride my bike too! The location the sound is coming from is hard to pin down, however I have narrowed it down to either my left knee and/or right knee, however it could also be lower back, left or right ankle or just some residual hearing damage I have from attending a gig the Screaming Jets played at the Hallam Hotel in the mid 1990's. Hope that helps in some way..... :wink:

Make sure the wheels are on tight. :wink:

Had it long? If not it's a warranty issue.

Could be anything!

-handle bars loose In stem (mine creak occasionally when climbing)
-crank bolts loose
-chainring bolts loose (most likely)
-anything else that tightens or is fixed by bolts on the driveline loose

Would like more info on type of bike but for my 2c worth:

* Chain too tight or too loose
* Back wheel slightly off centre.
