    Clickity

    My El Cap seems to have developed a click that I can't track down. I've been through cranks, chain ring, pedals, bottom bracket, cassette and rear derailleur (actually replaced the old type 2 with a 2.1). I've had the main pivot apart and cleared powder coat off the bearing contact points, cleaned and greased the shaft and so forth. But I cant seem to track down this rhythmic click. Happens sitting or standing under moderate pressure. Does not seem to impact performance or the ride, is just annoying. Hoping to get some input from some long time Ventana riders that have maybe experienced this.

    Happy trails...

    Hate to say this but thoroughly inspect frame. My x-5 was doing this and it turned out to be a crack in seat tube. I didnt notice it for a while.

    Dang, I had checked twice before but decided to go back through for a third time and found this at the top of the lower shock mount on the down tube. First pic is as I found it...incredibly tough to get a decent shot of it. But being a modeler I have some fine pigments so dusted it over for some contrast. The odd thing is it only clicks when pressure is applied to the left side...

    Okay pics loaded in the reverse order...

    Happy trails...
