i had the same problem, try taking your cranks off and putting them back on, or maybe your BB, if that doesn't work just take it to your lbs

Possibly not enough spacers inside your bottom bracket, so the tube spacer in the middle in moving around. Either add a longer tube spacer, put some smaller spacer inside, or just take it out. You might also not have enough spacers on your spindle next to your crank arm. Like I said on the other thread, just try greasing everything up.

Is your chain loose? it might just be the chain about to pop, but then it gets stuck halfway and clinks back on. This happens to me alot, just tighten your chain and if it keeps happending, then its something else, or if it helps a lil bit, then it might be more that your sprocket is bent.

Clean out your bottom bracket... And i mean completely disassemble it and soak it in gas and then dry it off and the put some heavy grease on the spindle... Like legit grease... its called silicone grease. Once your spindle is all lubed up pop it back in and the clunking and squeaking will be gone. Make sure u dont get grease on the splines tho. GOOD LUCK!

make sure everything is super tight. could be your pedal or arm wobbling. also might be a bad bearing.
