or loose cogs ( check lockring ) or loose freehub on axle. Check preload.

I can be wrong, and have plenty of examples for that ;)

How does it sound in some of the other cogs? Same clanking sound? I sometimes get a similar sound on my smallest cassette cog, a 12, and I recall hearing it might have something to do with resonant harmonics of the smaller cog. I get no such noise on the 13 cog and up.
