Earlier I was trying tailwhips out of a quarter, flyout not air whips, and the one I did I landed really weird cause I went too high by accident, landed and heard a loud TINK.. like the sound that your handlebars make when you land nose heavy and they move. It sounded bad..

Inspected my bike, nothing broken/cracked from what I can see, bars didn't shift, no broken spokes or chain links, headset spins fine, pedals aren't busted and sprocket didn't crumble.. So I have/still have no idea what the fuck that noise was.


Anyone ever have this happen? Post about it here, it's such an uneasy feeling knowing it made that bad a noise but nothing appears to be damaged. Rode it afterwards & it felt fine too so idk haha.

Happened with my cranks/ rear wheel once after clipping a jump, have no idea what it was but it stopped so i guess it was nothing serious

I really doubt it, my chain's not that loose.



Upon further inspection, I found I cracked & almost split the front bumper to my seat in half haha but that's not that big of a part to make that loud a noise. Oh well.

Spokes dude. Wheel flex, etc. happens no matter what, trust me. I HATE it. Supposedly 48 spoked wheels dont do that. And 5 cross tend not to, but it sure does piss me off. Lol i have strange squeaks when i pedal, bc of my chain. I bought chain lube and it only works for a little bit. I am trying 3 in 1 oil bc that makes it stop usually haha

Spoke flex/loosening probably.

Or your bars creaked a tiny bit.

Check over all welds, check out spoke tension too.

Checked over all welds, nearly shit myself a few times cause dirt was lining the welds of my cranks & frame in a few places haha. I'm gonna go with my spokes cause a few of them were fairly loose when I checked it over earlier

Already did that, @BNC doubt it was the BB, but I popped open my headset & the bottom bearing was a bit crunchy for only being a few months old.. Don't know if that would have caused it but I threw some fresh grease in there after cleaning it up anyway.

Have had this happen and so have friends, Headset bearing cracked, or a hub body/ driver bearing.

Just seen the post above.

i used to have this problem… i just tightened up my headset/fork bolt and the noise went away for ever

happens to me all the time because I have a broken driver on my hub . its most likely just the hub skipping I think

Probably something to do with the front spokes

Check front wheel bearings and spokes. That happened to me as well, but still rides fine.
