ok I didn't find quite this problem in a search so here goes...
I have a creak/click kinda sound when I get out of the saddle and pedal on my road bike. I added grease to my pedals and crank arms yet the sound still presists. one of my friends suggested that I try to tighten the bottom bracket.
Currently I am stuck because I cannot figure out how to get the crank arm off the spindle, I removed the bolt but the arm is so tightly on that I have yet to be able to remove it, so is there a special tool that I need or a better way to remove them for service, or should I go the the lbs?
secondly does anyone have a better suggestion as to what the sound may be? I ruled out spokes making the noise under stress as the sound comes from the crankset/bb area. the bike is fairly new and is an al frame, with shimano 105 cranks. anyhow any help would be appreciated
