    If you've eliminated everything else it might be (pedals, cranks, saddle, seatpost, knees) then yeah, try changing the BB.

    What BB is it and how much action has it seen?
  • It's not the peddles i'v changed them i have narrowed it down the the chain set or the BB

    Park Tool's website has a click-locator guide that can be helpful.
  • i'v looked on the web site but can't find it. Have you got a link for it.

    is it the BB clicking? checked the pedals, arms, chain ring bolts, seat post etc?
