Strange Headset Noise
Hi - I have a 2003 Cannondale R600 with the Ritchey SI integrated headset. I just recently installed a new Ouzo Pro Integrated fork (w/ carbon steerer). I'm 99.99999% certain I installed it correctly.
I am noticing a "creaking" noise coming from the headset area when I come out of the saddle and really crank. I believe I have the headset properly adjusted and tightened.
Is a noise (think muffled, old wooden rocking chair creaking) of this type common with a fork with a carbon steerer?
Thanks - Paul
