rip it apart and grease everything that is metal on metal contact.

or..... give a short video of your bike making the noise...maybe it can be figured out.

The chain is one of the noisiest things.Make sure the chainline is straight and it's lubed up.Also,dont run your chain too tight.

find out where the noise is coming from?

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
Bike check?

Unless the bearing's are rooted like mine. Pedals make ALOT of noise for something so small.

mine dont make a single noise.


just get some tri flow and lube everything. also, look at a new chain. its a cheap part and will more than likely help with most of the noise. i love having a brand new chain.

Grease your headset, bottom bracket bearings, cranks. Make sure your chain is tight, but not too tight. Tighten up everything as much as you can. If you can't figure it out, take it to your bike shop and have them do like a tune up, they just make sure your bike is solid and everythings how it should be
