Noise from rear wheel
#1
I recently started having a clicking noise from the rear axle area of my bike. It is a Schwinn Link (City series).
It doesn't start until riding about 4 miles. It is like tak tak tak and I feel it in the pedals and frame. It has a frequency of about 2 clicks per second. It is like someone is lightly tapping on the rear axle with a piece of metal. It only happens when putting power to the pedals and gets more pronounced the harder I pedal. It comes and goes but after riding a long time stays. If I freewheel I can sometimes get it to go away. This bike has 7 gears on the rear wheel. it is the loudest in 4th gear and gets less and less as I go away from 4th gear. It almost disappears at 2nd and 6th or 7th. What would cause this and how do I repair it? Thanks in advance

Sorry, you provided insufficient information for anything but the wildest guesses.

Guesses:
* when was your RD cable adjusted?  Generally, they need to be adjusted a few times in the first 100 miles or so, and then not again, unless something changes.
* when was your chain last lubricated?

Clicking sounds originating from bike wheels demonstrate something is out of alteration or needs upkeep. Spokes and wheel direction are potential noisemakers. Clicking or jabbering at the rear wheel when you pedal proposes the freewheel may be the source. A rear wheel that snaps when you drift shows the inward piece of the wheel center point needs overhauling. In case you're sure the noise is not originating from the base section or a derailleur, decide the wheel that is clicking and stage your bike instruments in the work territory.
