Exclamation Metal clank sound while riding

Hello everyone

I need your help recently i have change my tyres but since them i cannot stop hearing a metal "clank" while driving, look to be on the chain but i have already check

- Sprockets
- Chain
- Alignment and adjustment of the chain and back wheel
- Brakes pads and calipers
- I have as well spin the wheels (both) but not really able to reproduce the issue.

Does anyone have an idea? or can point me to something else to check?
The sound apear randomly, could be at any gear and without revving it

Kind regards

is the rear brake caliper fitted properly on its slide which is the part on the swing arm that fits in the 20mm grove in the caliper bracket? This is to stabilise the caliper and stop it, potentially, rotating when the brake is applied.

I have check this as well

It is possible that the Cush drive from the back wheel is causing this metal sounds? they were pretty worn when i changed the wheel
