Recently my 2008 Devinci mountain bike sounds like it's ticking when I push down on my left pedal on a usual rotation.
When I turn the bike over and go through rotations, I can't get it to tick.
When I put my left crank all the way down & jump a little on the left pedal, I don't get the ticking. Only when I'm spinning.
The ticking isn't 100% consistent, but probably about 80-90% of the rotations have this tick.
I took it to my LBS, but they just said it was a bent chainring tooth - which it wasn't.
Does this sound like this is definitely the bottom bracket?
Update: I took it into my LBS to get the BB taken out & cleaned. The tech said he couldn't find anything wrong with it, but did hear the ticking. He greased & lubed anything that moved, and the sound lessened quite a bit. I haven't had a good long ride on the bike since, so I haven't verified if the sound has gone away.
Final update: Went for a good ride & didn't hear the ticking, so it was likely the BB.
