comment Annoying clicking sound from the bottom bracket
Interestingly I continued riding it and after some 200km of riding with it, the sound isn't there anymore! It rides smooth now. What made the exact sound is still a mystery to me, but I'm glad that it went away. I love this bike!

I've removed the chain and the sound reduces sharply... i can barely hear it or feel it when there is no chain pressure, but sound is still there. Interesting thing is when I lube the drive train well, the sound sometimes disappear but it comes back again. I'll try cleaning the drive train through and lube it. The problem with opening BB is we don't have the tools to open a press fit BB here in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Thanks all for your suggestions, hope to get it fixed soon.

@DanielRHicks: Yes I feel a bit (just a bit) stiffness when the clicking sound happens as I turn the pedals backwards. I'll remove the chains and try doing it without the chains.

Thanks, the noise is coming from the bottom bracket, I'm quiet certain of that. Can you please explain a bit by what you mean by side load on the BB bearings and how should I go about to fix that?
