I have noticed over the past few comutes a noiseing coming the BB area on my bike. It'd hard to describe but it is as if bearings are falling on each other as i turn the crank (hope that explains it) the noise stops as soon as I stop peddaling. I have checked the clearance on the deauralier and it is fine.

Any ideas what this might be. It doesn't seem to be afftecting the performace but it is a little bit annoying.

It doesn't always happen sometimes i can pedal and there is no noise but it is becoming louder and more often.

The bike is fairly new and has only covered 350 miles so far so I guess it shouldn't be bearings.

Any help would be appreciated.
