Apologies to ISIS

I feel I should apologise to ISIS for assuming it was the shonky bottom bracket that was creaking on the newly built 69er. I was so convinced that it was the bottom bracket that I didn’t even consider anything else.

Firstly I removed the cranks, regreased the splines and did every up super tight. It creaked.

Then I removed the cranks and bottom bracket, regreased everything and did it all up super tight. It still creaked.

Then I did the rear QR up a bit tighter. It didn’t creak.

So, apologies to ISIS, it wasn’t your fault. Well not this time anyway.

    I did about 5 miles into and around town this morning, and a few runs up and down the street this evening trying to cure the creaking.

    Heavy rain tomorrow :(

    I still think it might be your knees. Have you tried lubricating them from the inside with a drop of Cotes du Rhone?
