A bent derailleur hanger, or one that is out of alignment, can cause a constant clicking sound while pedaling. The derailleur hanger might be visibly bent or off if it’s bad enough. Sometimes a creaking noise can occur from the derailleur hanger rubbing against the frame where it’s mounted.

Why is my pedal clicking?
Probably because of wear or dirt in the bottom bracket bearings. That’s if the click is once per turn of the pedals, and stops when you stop pedalling. If it keeps clicking it might be something to do with a wheel instead.
Why does my bike make noise when I pedal?
It may be slightly loose or inadequately lubed; this will make the noise when you pedal. Solution: Tighten/or, if that doesn’t work, remove the crank arm, lightly grease the axle and reinstall. Pedal with regular pressure. After a few laps the arms should loosen up and you should be able to remove them by hand.
Why does my bike make a clicking sound when I am not pedaling?
Originally Answered: Why do bicycles make that clicking sound when moving but not pedalling? That is the freewheel working, it is located on the rear wheel under the gears. It allows you to coast without pedaling. It is a safety feature- fixie bikes don’t have a freewheel.
When pedaling a bicycle if you stop pedaling?
When we stop pedalling, the bicycle begins to slow down. This is again because of the friction forces acting opposite to the direction of motion. In order to keep the bicycle moving, we have to start pedalling again.
How do you fix ghost pedals?
The end result will be sporadic ghost pedaling when the bicycle is coasting. To fix this issue, you will have to replace the broken pawls, the freehub body, or the entire hub.
Why is pedaling so hard?
A bike is hard to pedal because it’s in the incorrect gear for the terrain or because of excessive friction. Changing to a smaller gear or reducing the friction makes riding easier. The cause of friction can be brake pads rubbing against the rim or disc, insufficient chain lubrication or low tire pressure.
How do I get rid of pedal Pops?
True bypass pedals often pop when switched at first because of a buildup of static electricity that is discharged when the pedal is engaged. Usually turning the pedal on and off a few times with the footswitch clears out the static buildup and you’re good after that.
How do I get rid of true bypass pop?
Build up of DC leakage from the input and output caps in the true-bypass pedal. Sometimes stepping on the pedal a few times will release that build up and the pedal will stop popping.
Why do some guitar pedals pop?
This is normal. The reason this happens is because the capacitors in the circuit leak a little bit of DC while the pedal is in the bypassed state. When you engage the pedal, the capacitors charge back up to the proper operating voltage which is translated into a small “pop” in the audio signal.
