Hey, I have a 2006 Qu-ax Cross 1500. And lately when im riding it makes a noise. So say im jjust riding and then I start hopping and as soon as i do a hop it makes a noise for the first 2 hops and then it stops. I dont know what it is?
I had a “loose coin hitting metal” noise with my cross. If it is the same noise, check between then cranks and the frame. there should be a little red spacer on each side of the frame. They are fairly loose, and make a bit of a rattling sound sometimes. I phoned my retailer, and he said they serve no purpose. I removed them at his recommedation. no more noise.
check the bearing clamps that theyre tight enough, but not too tight and definatly not loose. - this happened to me the other day and my frame wobbled all over the place as i rode.
regrease the spline interface betwneet the cranks and hub, and tighten back up.
make sure its not the pedals.
then i dunno.
when i ride i get a ticking noise from what seems to be my uni, but its the end of my shoelace where the hard plastic bit is on it to stop it fraying, hitting against the crank and making a metallic ticking sound.
Yeah its probably your spokes because when my spokes were loose they would click the first couple of hops or pedals. So I had my lbs guy tighten my spokes and he did it for free because he loves me since I bought so much stuff through him.
