I recently had my cross-bike tuned up and recabled by a friend who is a mechanic at one of the better shops in the bay area. He did a sweet job, but I have a reoccurring problem with the crankset and/or bottom bracket. Basically, the pedaling is noisy and creaks really bad. It was problem free after the last tune up until about 1-mile into my first ride after the tune up, then the creaking began again. All the mechanics that have looked at the BB say its in good shape, and its only about 4 months old. So why does it keep getting noisy shortly after a tune-up? Could it be the pedals (ritchey spd)?
I have an older LX triple crankset and I think the BB is just a lower-end tapered Shimano (LX?). Not sure the model on the BB but it only cost me $25 if that helps.
Thanks in advance...:confused:
