That's pretty much what mine does, but it always gets worse in warmer, dry weather and when I leave my bike in my truck when it's hot outside.jparker164 said:mine ticks sometimes, seems like it goes away after a nice bike washing or some creek crossings though.
I've checked all of the typical areas:What&son said:not to contradict you, but why are you suspecting thoose pressed in areas are the culprits? There are a dozen other places where I can think the tick might come, have you checked them already?
Besides, I really find odd a pressed inn such junction can make any noise. A tick means movement, which I doubt...anyway, just guessing
Last month my DeusX was clicking at the 2 o'clock position under power, put the crankset into a new frame and no clicking so far.!bike said:I tried injecting various lubricants into the crank arm (crank arm/chain ring arm area
on the Hollowtech.) No change in my case.
this one makes me think of a non properly faced bb shell as a possible reasonRatt said:Last month my DeusX was clicking at the 2 o'clock position under power, put the crankset into a new frame and no clicking so far.
Nah, was in a 5 year old frame. This warranty replacement DeusX was on the bike for 9 months before it started clicking, the previous DeusX was in use for a year with no clicking but wobbled on the splines.What&son said:this one makes me think of a non properly faced bb shell as a possible reason
Utter and complete humilation. After days of testing and playing, finally wentThought Criminal 9 said:After removing the BB and re-taping and greasing everything around the cranks again I still had the ticking. Everything else is now very smooth and quiet,
But I believe I've found the problem. It's one or both of the pedals. I put on some old pedals and the ticking is gone. Now the question is, what in my Shimano 959 pedal is ticking. The bearings seem smooth and nothing is loose.
So remember to check your pedals if you have drive train noise particularly a ticking sound.
I think was exactly my problem. I cleaned and re-greased the pedal threads with some really good grease, tightened the pedals pack on and the ticking is gone.!bike said:Utter and complete humilation. After days of testing and playing, finally went
over the the LBS to consider a new left bearing. Loose pedals! I'm a idiot :eekster:
I checked everything, everything (even hand checked the pedals I thought, but
did not take a wrench to them.) I have the same type pedal, bikeshop guy
said something about his same type pedal also clicks. So far looks like the pedal
tighten has cleared my issue (cross fingers.) But since the LBS did the actual
wrenching instead of me, they might have just exorcised the tick poltergist :thumbsup:
Bought a dedicated pedal wrench.
16 year old dead thread resurrection! Easily the best "from the dead" of 2022.Hopefully there are a few people still following this thread. Maybe one of you has sorted it out.
I have ticks in both my XT and Zee crank sets. It's cyclic with the cranks therefore isn't anything rear of the BB. I've changed BBs - even put a Hope BB in my HT. I don't think it's pedals as I swap regularly. It has been vert dry recently so cranks haven't been wet.
