Bike makes squeaking noise when being pushed

Recommended Posts

The rear of my bike makes a squeaky noise when I push it I can't hear it when I'm riding only when off and pushing it's coming from the rear any ideas where it's coming from?

Chain, rear wheel bearing, shock linkage bearings, also if the kickstand is contacting the swingarm it can squeak. Check the easy stuff first.

If you suspect rear wheel bearings first get it on a center stand and turn the wheel by hand to feel for resistance/squeaking. Then remove the wheel and turn the bearings by hand to feel for unusual resistance, scraping, squeaking, grinding, etc. Bearing should turn smooth, even and quiet.

Just put new rear pads a few months ago

The caliper could still be stuck and causing a pad to drag lightly.
