My hub is making this annoying clicking noise on each rotation and its driving me insane. I have no clue what it is and its a Rant hub that came with my Subrosa complete. shitty hub, but does anyone know what the problem might be? Any help at all is appreciated

Funny that. My hub clicks quite a lot. it's the pawls clicking on the ratchet ring.....

Does it happen only while pedalling? Not pedalling?When you're on the bike? When you're not on the bike?

It happens when I'm not pedaling and on the bike. It's not the regular cassette noise, its a little bit slower of a ticking.

Do you have a brake? Could be a stray cable tapping something. Could be that your wheels a touch buckled, or a snapped spoke. Could be one of your springs/pawls are damaged. Could be a lot of things.

This. Might even be a small pebble or something in the rim.

I think i found the problem, I've got a seriously bent spoke. I just don't know how to fix it. Any suggestions? i plan on getting a whole new rear wheel when i have the money, should i just leave it for a bit more or try and fix it?

Bend it straight or take it out, replace it if you want but you should be able to true your wheel enough with only one missing

If the spoke doesn't solve your problem, strip the hub and rebuild with grease.

how dangerous is the bent spoke? That is definitely the source of the sound. If its not too concerning I'm not planning on fixing it because i plan on getting a whole new rear wheel.
