    bottom bracket problem???

    i have a 2013 specilized hardrock 29er and a week ago it got all muddy so i got a water hose and hosed it down i did not think much of water getting in any thing but a couple days later i went for a ride and noticed the bottom was making a clicking sound whenever i pedal but when i stop pedaling it stops the noise i checked and nothing was lose and you can actually fell the click when pedaling threw the pedals and was wondering if water got in there and made something lose something or what but any suggestions on what i can do or whats the problem? it has got to the point were it is really annoying so please help.

    Try putting some lube on your chain. It could just be that.

    Remove the bb, grease, re-install. Check pedal bearings/bushings

    Remove the chain from the chainrings and spin the crank with your finger on the crankarm. If the noise goes away it was in the chain or pedals. If the noise continues it's the BB.
