    My first thought is that you might have over-tightened the preload on the bottom bracket bearings and borked them, but we need more info.

    Is the clicking once or more per revolution of the pedals?

    Have the wheel bearings been serviced?

    If you try a different (known good) wheel does the problem persist?

    If you take the chain off and spin the cranks, are they smooth or is the click aparent then?

    Is the rear wheel installed correctly?

    Is the chain installed correctly with no stiff links?

    There are so many potential causes, you need to be systematic and eliminate them one by one.

    Did you use a spacer with the 10 speed cassete? (They're narrower than 9 speed cassettes)

    Sounds like that (unlikely but needs to be correct anyway) or (more likely) the wheel bearing or (less likely) the freehub.

    Yes I did, its the 1mm spacer that goes on first your referring to isnt it ?

    I take it you're using a 10sp chain now to (and that you also replaced the chainset and rings as part of the new groupset)?
  • Does it happen in every gear & on both rings?
