- Creaking Hope BB ?
Only 3 months old so doubt it but seem to have a creak / tinging type noise from the BB area which is worse when applying more power.
I’ve stripped the cranks off and cleaned the BB like the Hope video shows, and even replaced the chain, but its still doing it.

One of my Hope BB on the singlespeed was creaking. Had issues with the chainring bolts, fixed that still slight click and creak. Stripped and found the driveside bearing was full of grinding paste. Bike is cleaned a dozen times a year and ridden 6 days a week and no jetwash yadda yadda. Not sure how it got in there. Flushed it out and regreased, but is beyond help and needs a replacement bearing. Anyone know where sells and what to fit please?Posted 4 years agotheraggyoneMember
Had the same symtoms a few months back with my hope bb .ordered the bb tool from superstar for a tenner took it apart (really easy job) gave it a thorough clean and applyed loads of grease to the threads both in frame and on cups .screwed the cups back In popped the plastic covers that sit on top of the bearings off with a small driver cleaned the bearings and put loads of grease in then replaced the covers and wiped away the excess grease that came out. Re assembled the cranks cleaning and greasing as I went and have not heard any creak since .silence is goldenPosted 4 years ago
