Shoelaces in particular. Not too long ago I began to hear a clicking with each crank revolution, and I thought, "Oh, no, something is finally going wrong with the Phil bb (getting on for 11K miles, *and* with ti spindle and aluminum cups). Nope: sloppy shoelace tying with long laces.
Longer ago, after much grief and anguish, I finally traced a troublesome clicking to the stem clamp. My '03 Riv still clicks occasionally, alternated with squeaks -- it's the saddle in the rails, I'm pretty sure, but as it comes and goes, it doesn't last long enough for me to fret about it enough to fix it.
