hi there my wet weather bike (GT gts sport) with 8pd claris on has annoying clicking type noise from rear mech now it pretty much done this out the box as far as i can recall Ive tried adjusting the indexing on the rear mech which seems not to really effect it. intrestingly though its only when its in the big ring it is silky and smooth in the little ring but the noice is defiently not coming from front mech so i cant really work out how to fix this any thoughts?

    Sounds like a bit of cross chaining, ie big ring front to big ring back or little ring front to little at the back. It's worse if you have a triple chainset. Go on park tools website for instructions on how to set up gears correctly.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.
