So, there is a short back-story to why I'm asking this. Simply put, there is a creaking coming from the front of my Inbred, and it makes me nervous. I have a RaceFace Ride XC Stem, NukeProof warhead bars, OnOne Smoothie headset, and a carbon X-Lite fork (which has a carbon steerer on it). It's all held together with some FSA thing which seems to work like a Hope Head Doctor.
Now, for love nor money I can't figure out why it is creaking, but it makes me nervous when I start to notice it riding singletrack. I've started to wonder if it boils down to have the wrong bolt torques, I don't want to over tighten the bolt and damage the fork steerer. The thought of a fork failure scares me no-end.
Am I being paranoid over nothing? If I do get one, how do I know what to torque the bolts to? I bought the fork second-hand but like-new from the classifieds.
Also, if I do get one, what would you all recommend?
