don't know what's causing it.. because i've only put about 500 miles on this groupset. i tried to duplicate the sound on the bike stand, but it doesn't show up.
any suggestion on where to look?

Checking your chainring bolts?
Checking to see if your bottom bracket is poorly adjusted?
Checking your pedal threads?
Checking to see if the excess cable from your FD is hitting the crank arms on rotation?

Will have to check that out tomorrow and see...
Are you 100% sure it's coming from the crank/BB assembly?
If it's a regular and fast tick tick tick tick then check the alignment of the Derailleur and chain, the chain could be catching slightly. I've had this before and it's very annoying!
There is a torque spec on the Sram red near the hex bolt, by the way if you are looking in that area I would the remove the cranks and do a visual inspection to make sure the bearings are not loose in the bb cups (kind of cups).

@showdown: ok, i'll try checking the chaincatcher. come to think of it.. i only hear it when i'm in the 34T and not on the 50T. even on rolling hills, the 34T combo will have that clicking sound.
@oreoboreo: my chain catch is the one that came with the SRAM RED. last i check it was aluminium i think.
@Shinobi: skewers are new from farsport with the rims, so i don't think that's the issue. but will check anyways.
i hadn't had a chance to really look into the issue since the 4th of july weekend took up most of my time away from my ride. will check it tonight and see.

test ride.. and the sound is gone.. but from time to time comes back but very faint. alignment issue maybe?
