Bicycle makes strange sounds – BikeGremlin

Updated: 17/02/2019.

This post deals with a topic that creates much headache to cyclists and mechanics. “My bicycle makes strange sounds”. So: what to do when a bike starts creaking, scratching, clicking, squealing or something similar?

In my experience, it’s necessary to first determine the source of the strange sounds (obviously). Once the source is pinpointed, solution is usually obvious – usually involves tightening something, lubricating, adding mounting (anti-seize) paste to a connection/bolt etc. But how to find out what’s making the noise? That is sometimes not as easy as it sounds (pun intended). Here I’ll explain the system I use when some noise seems very mysterious and source can’t be figured out.

TLDR: problems with “bicycle making strange sounds” are sometimes trivial, while sometimes frustrating. I tried to systematically process this subject, hoping it will help someone. All the details are in this article.

Alaska Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance

(The following article originally appeared on the Sitka Bicycle Friendly Community Coalition website, Celebrate Sitka Cycling, on May 14, 2012.)

In 2008, Sitka became the first Alaska community to earn a Bicycle Friendly Community award. On Monday, May 14, Sitka became the first Alaska community to earn a renewal of its Bicycle Friendly Community designation.

With Monday’s national announcement to kick off National Bike to Work Week, Sitka maintained its bronze level designation in the Bicycle Friendly Community program run by the League of American Bicyclists. Sitka now is one of three recognized communities in Alaska (Anchorage earned a BFC designation in 2009 and Juneau in 2011, also at the bronze level). There currently are 214 communities in 47 states with Bicycle Friendly Community designations (at the platinum, gold, silver and bronze levels). Sitka’s award is good for four years, expiring in February 2016.

Pro cyclist in Italy uses his bike to deliver medicine

ROVATO, Italy (AP) — There are no fans lining the road. No teammates providing support. And there is no race to win.

Professional cyclist Davide Martinelli has achieved a moral victory, though, by using his bike to help deliver medicine to elderly residents and others in need during the coronavirus pandemic.

The service is of great use in Lodetto, Martinelli’s hometown in the hard-hit Lombardy region of northern Italy. The village has neither a pharmacy nor a supermarket.

Martinelli makes a daily trip to Rovato, the next town over, to pick up supplies.

“I’ve got a bike and two legs in pretty good form, so riding 10 kilometers (6 miles) a day is no big deal,” Martinelli said in an interview this week. “I wanted to help the people who always support me during the season. It’s time to give back to them.”

Martinelli joined up with a Facebook group
