    have a read of the sorting noisy drive train in the FAQs.

    it could be:
    pedals
    chainrings
    cranks
    BB
    seat post
    saddle
    bars
    gear shifters/brake leavers
    hubs
    Fork
    cracked frame
    hubs
    and a few other things.

    Use cleats? good chance they are a bit worn and need replacing (if it is in time with pedalling)...

    Or maybe front mech cable ... always annoying to find that one clipping the cranks.
