- What else sounds/feels like a dodgy bottom bracket?
Pedals was one thought I had.
I’m running the 2011 versions of these – http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=16097
Probably about 1,000+ miles in them over two years.Posted 4 years agoandybanksMember
My bottom bracket started to feel rough and made noises I’ve known to be rattly bearings in the past.
I replaced it and the noise/feeling went.
Now part way through just one ride the feeling came back.
Could I have simply got a duff bottom bracket or is there anything else that gives the same feel/sound – possible a wheel hub?Posted 4 years agoolixmb4xMember
im having the exact same issue! two weeks back i had a creak under power (left hand side), so thought it must be BB, so i changed it – but the noise cotinued… So then i gave my superstar pedal a service and its solved it! however now its come back, and is also on the drive side now!!
so that was a wasted 26 quid on a new bb – at leat ive got my other as spare!Posted 4 years ago

You need a methodical approach to this,start by greasing saddle rails,taking pedals off and greasing threads and reinserting,and cleaning rear dropouts and greasing,these are all common and easy and cheap fixes,cleaning and lubing seatpost if apoplicable too.After this it starts to get expensive.Posted 4 years ago
