"When I stand, the click goes away."
While I'm certainly no bike mechanic, your statement above about standing up seems to suggest to me that the seat or seat post may have something to do with the noise, because as you removed it from the equation, you removed the noise. Just a shot in the dark.

Best,

Click is gone.

Replaced the chain (it needed to be replaced anyway). No improvement as far as the click.

Pulled the seatpost. Wiped it off, checked the seattube in case 'the bull' put some ball beraings in there :), regreased seatpost and reinserted. Noise gone. Rode tonight, no click.

I am sane again. Thanks to everyone for the advice, believe it or not this has been one of my bigger learning experiences in lots of years building and maintaining my own bikes. Lesson learned - check the easy, non-obvious stuff first.....
