I have a Trek 1 series and have started to get a creaking type noise when riding. It is definately linked to the steering as I don't get it when i'm going dead straight but as soon as go over bumps etc and the steering is twitching slightly it makes a noise.
Is this the bearings needing greasing and if so how difficult? - I'm a novice mechanic!!!
Thanks for any tips:thumb:

Before you disassemble your headset and grease it, tighten it! Make sure it's snug enough before you take it apart. If you've never disassembled a headset, it's easy to get things back in wrong.
