    Hi had the same creaking on my trek fuel ex 6. I thought greasing the bearings would sort it to no avail.
    What I found after a basic clean and oil it that it was the seat post. After a light coating the creaking has disappeared!
    Hope this is helpful!

    I’ve had an annoying creaking under pedal load on my SC Superlight. I’ve checked chainset, pedals etc so decided that maybe a pivot bearing change was in order.

    I expected the bearings to be a interference fit, but both sides came out really easily and the new ones could be pushed back in by hand should I be worried? They weren’t loose in the frame, just not tight and the swingarm seems pretty solid and moves smoothly.


    Needless to say the annoying creak is still there 🙁
