Had some creaking in my stem/bar area (threadless). Took off the stem and the raiser rings, put a small coating of grease on, also took off the bar clamp bolts and greased them too. Well it appears to have solved the creaking, however - I put the stem top cap back on first, before tightening the stem bolts. Well the steering is tight. So after tightening the stem bolts, I went back and adjusted the top cap bolt with no luck, I can turn the bars to one side to the other and the movement is tight. In the work stand, it will stay to one side or the other, no movement on its own. Whats up!
