    It's a great ride and all but I have something that developed in the rear tire, it's making some kind of ticking or clicking sound, as I pedal faster the ticking gets faster, I brought it to my lbs and a tech had a look, he couldn't seem to figure out where it's coming from, he suggested it might be the wheel touching something in the triangle, I told him it might be the brakes or the hub he didn't think so, was wondering if anyone here seen this before. Thanks in advanced.
    What Size Tire are you running? Even if it is a little oversize it may cause rubbing. Mine are 2.40" and anything greater will be pretty tight - pending tread pattern of course.

    Do you have a stand perhaps to mount the bike into and give the cranks a spin, then you may check for the sound.

    Do you hear the sound only when cornering hard - is there any play in your Rim or Hub Bearings? Can you move the wheel easily side to side by hand?

    You can put some masking tape (Not Duct Tape) inside the swingarm inline with the tire. Maybe difficult with the wide tires, but after a ride you may see if there are any rubs visible on the tape.

    Have you looked over your rear swingarm, check for any signs of cracks (Paint Chipped, any sort of aluminum particles that may show from wear, hairline cracks etc.) Check the welds too!

    Clean the back of the bike really well to include the swingarm mount on the front triangle. Let it dry and if need be use an LED Flashlight and shine it over the surface (a crack will catch the light and you will see the irregularity in the shadow).

    What color is your rear swingarm - the lighter colors will show the cracks easier if there are any, and the "aluminum particle dust" will show easier on the dark colors.

    Just be careful, because if the swingarm is cracked (Worse Case) you dont want to be out riding and have it fail! You may get hurt, or if not you are going to be pushing / carrying your bike back to the Car / Truck.

    Hope this helps a bit.

    Adding to dr's questions, do you only hear the sound when you're pedaling or does the sound also happen when you are coasting?

    Thanks for all the replies, yeah the bike's pretty new (2011-black and white) I haven't put any abuse on it yet except for occasional curb jumps, so a crack on the swingarm would surprise me.
    The sound only started like a couple weeks ago, it happens when freewheeling and pedaling, its there when cornering and riding straight, my tires are high rollers, when I took it to a shop near my house the tech put it on his work stand and spun the cranks fast, no noise there, I told him only when a rider's on it, it makes the clicking noise. What I'll do is bring to the shop I bought it from, their also an authorized Yeti dealer so I'm hoping they'll figure this out, kinda bummed that a yr old bike that's never gone through abuse starts getting these issues. Thanks again you guys.

    Don't stress too much about it, there could be any number of things causing it that come with normal wear and tear. If you truly can't find it, make sure you check the pin joint on the rims; if the pin loosens up it can click as the wheel rotates. Hopefully though, the shop will work it out.

    Like the previous poster stated, don't sweat it too much, and don't get disheartend. I am sure the tech will figure it out. Ask him to take it for a spin in the lot - while you are standing by, so that both of you can confirm you hear the noise. The ideas that I threw out were just all basically worst case scenario.

    For what its worth mine creaks when I really get into the Pedals - but I know its the crank being stressed under load, and I am ok with it as its nothing major.

    But let us know what you or the shop may find out - and enjoy your ASR-7

    Here are a couple of things to try.

    1) put a drop of chain lube one each spoke nipple so it goes into the rim. It could be a spoke that is making the noise.
    2) put a drop of chain lube one each spoke where it goes through the hub.
    3) Take the chain off and coast it around to see if it still makes the noise.It is much easier to here it without the freehub clicking
    4) This is a tough one due to the 12mil axel, but try a different wheel to see if it goes away.
    5) If it happens mostly when pedaling take the rear wheel off, clean the axle real good and reinstall the wheel and don't forget to tighten down the axle pinch bolts. I am constantly getting a creaking that is coming from the rear axle.

    Hope this helps

    I've always been happy with XT when it comes to front shifting duties.

    Ok guys, I havnt touched my granny ring at all in the last year and the last 100,000 feet of climbing. And after blowing apart a xt derailer and chain, I figure while I am replacing the derailer, I figure I might as well take off my front shifter and derailer if I don't need it..

    So what are you all running for chain guides on your 1x10 7's?

    I am trying to decide if I want to keep my bash ring or not. I really like the look of the 1x10 with a full guide and no bash ring.. But looking at my mine I have on there, I have used it a lot. What say you guys?

    I was going to run the MRP Mini G2 SL but then I decided to sell my ASR7 frame to build a DH bike. I run the MRP Lopes SL on my ASR5 which is the same thing without the taco bash and love it. The new DH bike is getting the full Micro G2/spiderless Bling Ring setup.

    I would also recommend the Mini G2 SL, got to have some bash protection. Mountain Racing Products home of MRP, White Brothers, Kreitler, Tamer, and Power Grips | MINI G2 SL

    I actually think I am going to go LG1+ or wait for the new MRP guide to come out.

    I like the look of the exposed chain guide as apposed to hiding it behind a bash. And being that this is a trail bike for me, I shouldn't be taking huge hits to the taco to worry about damaging ISCG tabs on my frame.

    Question:
    I'm running triple slx crank but as a double (XO shifter and XTR derailleur). Everything works well, but I'm wanting an XO crank. Can I get the OEM SRAM double crank and still put on my outside bashguard?

    Question 2:
    If I decide to end up running a single up front, can I:
    A. Turn the OEM SRAM double into a single?
    B. What kind of bashguard with chain guide can I run? (Links please )

    Running 2013 Sram X9 26/39T cranks. Does anybody know if there is a bash guard or chain guide that will fit? I've been looking, but no luck so far.

    E-mail Yeti for fit. There are dual guides + bash out there, like the e-13 TRS+ dual and the MRP 2X (AKA Truvativ XO or X Guide). No guarantee that they'd fit though.

    There's also the Bionicon C-Guide and the Clutch Derailleurs, but that doesn't help ya when you stay on the trail a bit late at night and decide to go up the mtn for one last run (without lights) and can barely see while ripping down the descent and go over rocks and one happens turn your big ring into a bashguard.

    I ran into the same problem with my SRAM setup only I'm running a 42t big ring. This came out recently still trying to decide if I need it.

    Edit: Disregard original message.

    That bashguard may be that thick at its thickest point, but how thick is it the arms leading to the bolts? If it's super thin there, that's gonna be an $80 useless piece of crap after 1 solid hit. You can buy an XX 42t chainring for $80.

    I'm 205lbs and I do 90% xc and 10% am/dh. I used the rp23 and hated it. I switched to a Fox DHX Air 5.0 and LOVED IT! I loved it so much actually I ordered the 2012 so I can get the kashima coating to match my fork. My new one came in yesterday, so I'll be putting it on my bike Saturday

    Edit: If you want my Fox DHX air 5.0 I'll sell it to you. They sell on pinkbike.com for 225-275 all day. It has no scratches and is ready to ride. It has about 400-500 miles on it (I do 8-12 miles per ride, 3x a week. I got it in May.) For a fellow 7er I'll sell it to you for $200 shipped.
