On the next ride I noticed serious creaking any time real power was put into the cranks such as climbing, every single pedal stroke.
I don’t have the tool to take off or tighten BB, but I took the cranks off and cleaned/greased everything in case it would help. It did not.
Then I noticed there’s a screw that holds on the cable guides under the bottom bracket. It turned out to be pretty loose and I tightened it… creaking sound went away. Anybody else ever run into this one?
Threadlock on the screw, perhaps?
