View Full Version : annoying clicking noise

i have yet another problem. ive always had a clicking noise when i pop my hood (which i was always told is normal). but now the clicking is extremely loud and obnoxious. it almost sounds like when you put a piece of cardboard in your bike spokes as a kid. i uploaded a couple videos but they are shi**y cell phone videos so you get an idea of the sound but not completely accurate. suggestions? ideas? thoughts?
