- Help with annoying creak !!
Could be something really simple and stupid. Have you checked the derailleur hanger? Take it off, clean the two faces which meet, pop a little bit of grease on and tighten back up. You’d be amazed how common that is.Posted 4 years ago
A colleague of mine was convinced his frame/cranks/bb/wheels were all f**ked as he had an annoying creak and couldn’t find it anywhere. Turns out it was the derailleur hanger.
My 5 spot has got an annoying creak type noise but only at certain times with the cranks in a certain position.
With the driveside crank arm at its lowest point and with a bit of weight on the pedal I get a creaking noise? Its not a loud creak and I doubt anyone else would notice it but I do and its annyoing me?
Any ideas what it could be ??
Ive just fitted a new bottom bracket as I thought the old shimano one was the culprit but it doesnt seem to be the case!!Posted 4 years ago
Well just as an update, I took the pedals off and swapped them over form my spd’s to see if it was really the pedals creaking and it turns out it wasnt.
So I started with the obvious bits… rear skewer, mech hangar etc and finally nailed it down to the seatpost and clamp.
So stripped them down and lubed them up and cool the creak has gone !Posted 4 years agoD0NKSubscriber
currently all my bikes creak, quite vexing
1, BB pretty sure
2, bearing pivots (despite all bolts being tight and bearings greased and in good nick) really noisy tho grrrr!
3, shock bushes
4, dunno maybe bolt in dropouts, maybe BB, intermittent singlespeed to not arsed.
slacken the rear skewer back wheel then re-tighten
