I have constant clicking noise from the 2nd largest rear cog on my cycle. It starts as soon as I shift into the 2nd gear either from 1st or 3rd gear.
I have checked the following things -
1. Cable tension - all gear shifts are smooth and quick(both on stand and while riding). 2. Limit screws are fine. 3. I have cleaned/oiled the chain and wiped off excess lubricant. 4. Checked if any of the links are sticking/getting stuck to its adjacent link- they are not. 5. Visual inspection of teeth shows no excessive wear or bent teeth on any of the cogs.
I have been unsuccessful in trying to locate the problem. I would be grateful for any pointers that will help in troubleshooting this problem. I am learning to fix my bike and would like to avoid taking it to LBS if possible.
Information: Cogs are 9 speed with Deore derailleur.
