Take off the wheel and check the brakes first, there is a rubber fitting on the caliper guides. When the rubber wears down it allows the caliper to move and make a knocking sound, also check the brake guides on the caliper support bracket. Last but not least, check the hub while you have the wheel off by rotating by hand.
