I know this has been done to death, but I've looked at the old threads and can't find the answer.
My new crank creaks particularly when pushing hard on the left pedal, but the noise sometime disappears when it is extremely cold (November in Scotland). Everything seems tight, as I tightened the crank every 25 miles when first installed (got about 2 or 300 miles on now), and the BB is a sealed Stronglight one, again new. I have checked frame and seatpost (steel frame)
Could it just be the way the alloy and steel react to changes in temperature.?
has anyone used PTFE tape over the BB taper ends to help fit crankarms?
