since you dont really know where its comming from.,,,DO THIS: Buy some good quality teflon oil (from a bike shop)- then squeeze 1 drop in each pedal bearing and in each crank bearing...and hell, while your at drop a little onto your chain. Problem solved. if that dont work, then come back. :p

yeah, its probably just that the cranks need greasing up, but if it continues, you should take it to a bike shop, cos if a bearing is out of alignment, or you have got some grit in you bearings, this will cause your bearings to wear down really quickly, thus resulting in a pain in the rectum and a waste of money.

If your bearings are sealed then Dirt can't get into the baerings...a lot of crsanks make noises...it happens when they get worn in and like i said to Rule...

"Cranks will make noises after they are a little used... there is probably nothing wrong with them. When your cranks snap and you bust your nuts on your top tube...then you know there is a problem with them."

The crank is sealed i think and the noise only happens when you put a bit of pressure on the pedals (stand up) the chain is fine all oiled and tight enough. Any ideas ? i noticed a load of alen key holes on the pedals and around the crank anything need doing with these ?

The pedals have taken a bit of a beating with all the attempted bar spins and fire hydran bails could this have anything to do with it ?
