Clicking sound from back wheel area


I keep hearing a rhythmical clicking coming from the rear wheel area. I have an Espin Sport. When I coast I don’t hear it. So I know it has something to do with the gears. But it is annoying and I can’t figure out what the problem is. My derailleur guard doesn’t appear bent and I don’t think that’s the problem. Anyone have an idea.

Do you have a bike stand that gets the rear wheel off the ground? If so, spin the pedals/crank slowly and see if you hear the noise. Could be coming from the cassette (gears) or even the chain if there's a stuck link. Without getting the rear wheel off the ground it might be very hard to find the problem.
