comment Tips for getting sponsored as an individual racer?
I used to sponsor riders, this is a good answer. I never used to respond to riders who wrote letters. I was looking for riders who would be an ambassador for my brand.

comment Why does my bike make a noise when I pedal hard?
Try testing by isolating each of the areas. It's more likely that steel will "ping" whereas aluminium usually squeaks (when there is rubbing or cracking). Are the bars or the frame made of steel?
