At the moment, Gouldy, I can only say that I have no idea what it could be, BUT, given the age of your bike and the probable mileage it has done, it certainly SHOULD NOT be happening, whatever it is Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

I'd certainly get straight back onto the dealer and make them aware of it, and fix it, rather than doing anything yourself and possibly losing your warranty/statutory sale rights.

Sorry if that sounds a bit O.T.T. but without hearing the "banging", I'm erring on the side of caution for you.

the rear mech might just need adjusting. it could be pulling or pushing the chain further than it needs

Are you sure it's at the mech and not from the wheel, what about if your not on the bike, i.e. it's on a stand or upside down, is it doing it then Question

Is it banging or clicking Question

Is the mech too far forward, and possibly hitting against the chain?

Clicking much better than banging Laughing Laughing


Have you tried rotating the barrel adjuster at the rear mech to see if that stops it, perhaps it's just your bike "bedding in" and suffering from cable stretch Question
