I just bought, cleaned up, and lubed a vinatage 1970's raleigh road bike - that fits me. I intend to ride it and re-break in the Brooks saddle. There is crunching sound from the crank area when I apply power (and cyldesdale weight) that's very disturbing. I'm guessing it needs the bottom bracket cleaned and repacked?
