Am running 2015 Campy SR on my Baum - usually a silent bike. Been getting a progressively worsening creak - particularly when out of the saddle. Finally tracked it down to the new cranks after the usual end-to-end investigation, new headset etc when I put my previous 2011 SR cranks back on the bike and silence seemed to return.
Had creaking on both large and small chainrings which have individual boltsets so I am suspecting the bearings or hirth joint - purely speculative at this point.
Has gone back to Campy distributor for look over.

Anyone else experienced this?

What kind of BB? Pressfit? Ooops, Nevermind, just saw the part about no creaks with the other crank. Maybe the chainring bolts. On new cranks I always like to disassemble and reassmble with a thin film of grease on the faces where metal meets and make sure they are all torqued properly and evenly.
Lol. Nevermind again. Should have read your post more thoroughly. Seems like you're doing the right troubleshooting. Grease between bearings and cup I presume.

....just because the 2015 cranks have individual bolts sets it doesn't mean that they are immune to creaking. Calnago's suggestion to apply grease where bolt face meets chainring is still applicable, not to mention grease in hirth joint too.

Hi guys - did you resolve this - my 2015 Campag SR cranks are also creaking - on a 'normal' threaded bottom bracket - its driving me mad.

I'm running 2 of the 2015 SR's - no problems. Besides the potential dabs of grease mentioned already (I only dab some on the hirth and the bolt for the hirth - I leave the chainring bolts alone), a previously suggested culprit for all cranksets is lack of lube also on the pedal spindle threads. Perhaps being a new crank that wasn't done at installation?

Campy replaced my cranks no questions asked - new set running beautifully silent

That's great @dadoflame08, were they able to determine the source of the creak? Anyway, good that all is running as it should. Never heard of Campy just replacing something like that with "no questions asked". But nice that they did.
