I hope you figure out what it is. My last bike was doing this exact thing before I sold it. I thought it was either a stretched chain or a bent sprocket tooth.

For what it's worth, I replaced the chain today and it fixed the problem. My old chain was so stretched that it was a link and a half longer than the new chain.

It's always the most obvious thing, isn't it? Even if it's not obvious at the time!

Glad to hear it's gone away... and hey... now you know your wheel is true, the brakes don't drag, the bearings are not snatching...

(Don't over-tighten the new chain, and keep it well lubricated: an inch or so of travel at the lowest part, on the longest section, off the stand, with someone sitting on the bike... )

bingo!

9 times out of 10 as I've experienced, when something around the chain is making noise, it's time to replace the chain AND sprockets.

you DID replace the sprokects too, didn't you?

Glad you got it all figured out!
