I'm two rides in after getting my bike back from the LBS and there is an annoying cracking/creaking sound when the forks depress. (The LBS had it while the forks and shock went back under warranty to Mojo and had wider bars fitted).
This happens under small compression (trail chatter) or big compressions. I can emulate it with the bike stood still and pumping the forks. I can do the same by compressing the forks holding either the head tube or the fork crown.
I've taken off the stem and all looks OK. Quite strangely it doesn't seem to do it without the stem or the stem untightened??
(Which in my mind eliminates headset, cables, bar, etc).
Apart from stripping out the the fork and rebuilding or going straight back to the LBS anybody have any suggestions, ideas??
