Most likely your BB bearings (a minor, easy to fix problem). I can't imagine it anything else.nyark! said:Have any of you experienced a ticking sound in the Crank or BB area of you Mach 4's? the ticking sound appears on a certain area which the pedal rotates and it becomes even worse if you pedal standing on the bike... I hope its not a broken BB.
I'm having it check at my Local bike shop... will post for results once I get my lovely mach 4 back.
As an aside, pretend you travel back to year 2000. Your BB tapered spindle either breaks off or strips when you do something like a 5' drop... and a big travel bike is the Heckler :lol: XC is only XC if it's a hard tail, TBW.
