I had a totally annoying creak a couple of years back, tried to replace the BB, chain, seat post etc etc... It turned out to be the Dura Ace cassette! Nuts.

I can't tell but does it change with cadence changes?

Hard to hear, but I would check your chairing bolts. Remove, grease, retighten. This problem happens occasionally after riding in the rain and getting grit come in between the alloy parts.

update: sound mysteriously went away by itself..but being the realist that i am, i suspect it will come back in time. the crankset on it is new, just upgraded to shimano 105s..any chance that the crankset maybe needed to "seat" itself? this was my first long distance ride.
