- Would seized frame bearings cause a clicking noise?
Easygirl cheers , it only happens when climbing though? Would I not hear noises when descending? They obviously moved to some extent as suspension felt fine and no play side to side , but out of the frame the hardly move by hand
Like said no noise when flat or descending but clicking type noise when climbing? Still possible?
Cheers by the way!Posted 4 years ago
My six month old five bearings are knackered , they will literally spin a fourth of a full turn on both bearings!
I’ve had a mystery click noise when climbing and I’ve tried absolutely everything to try and fix it. As frame was only new six months ago I’ve sort of ruled them out, but if they won’t move freely I’m guessing its a possibility
Just wondering if knackered bearings would actually cause clicks and creaks when climbing?
They were completely dry and rusty and as I said they won’t turn at all more than a fourth of a full revolution either way, ie pretty much seized?
I’m hoping its that obviously as I’ve changed them now and it’s basically the last thing I can think of to try and cure the clicking noise? Everything else I’ve tried hasn’t sorted it and nothing’s appeared broken, but the bearings obviously are and I can’t test them now till Tuesday! Argghhh!Posted 4 years agotmb467Subscriber
Had a click that I thought was the bottom bracket – turns out it was a pedal bearing! My bike rides like a hardtail when the pivot bearings go
Given that there are 24 different bearings that do different things on my bike, and that all but two have been replaced in the last year, I get quite annoyed when I hear a clickPosted 4 years ago
Lol onzadog agreed thus literally came out if no where it was fine for 6 months not a sound really other than creaking seat post , I’m skeptical this is the cause but I’m clinging on to any hope it could be as I have absolutely no idea what else it could be
But as you say they are a good starting point and given they are goosed and not running then I guess it is as good a chance as anyPosted 4 years agodibboidMember
I was in my lbs on Friday and a cube had been sent in for a Creek. It turns out that where the tubes butt up together at the headtube they were rubbing together under stress and the frame is less than 12 mths old so going back under warranty. Oooops. fingers crossed for your bearings bring the issue.Posted 4 years ago
