No probs at all mate.The colour is seriously catchy
hmm, interesting point about the BB creaking, in fact I thought I also had the BB creaking issue. Long story short, it was the seat post that was creaking.
So as a guess, check your seat post and see if it needs some extra lube -
The tall guy I see on Sunday morning rides is indeed riding black Z1 in rapha gear so I thought it might have been you.
Heading out to the hills on sunday?
Nope, I knew it wasn't the seat post. I'm an OLD hand at diagnosing creaks on bikes and that's the first thing I check - get out of the saddle and see if it's still making the noise. It was.
I pretty much knew what it was without having to do much investigating: loose cassette. That's not the first time that a loose cassette (not snugged down quite firmly enough with the lock-ring) has caused creaking that sounds like it's coming from the BB. The chain warps as the cassette moves and the whole thing transmits through to the BB - probably because it's the largest air cavity on the frame and so it makes a good sound chamber I guess.
Hope to be heading to the hills this weekend - 120 - 140 k trip. Should be fun!
You'll know me when you see me on my Z1 - she's candy purple with white panels
: can't miss it really!
Have a great weekend.
