There's a creak/squeak on my bike, frame flexes....
Hey dudes. In the last 24 hours a squeak has developed somewhere on my Dawes Galaxy. It happens only when I'm sitting on it and riding, but I needn't be actually pedalling. Just now I tried pressing one foot onto a pedal while standing next to the bike, and I can cause the noise to happen like that. I can also feel the frame flexing significantly if I push the pedal or crank arms, or even the BB, side to side. Is that ok or is it not meant to happen? It sounds like the creaky-squeak is coming from the frame itself.
I'm due to ride 130 miles on this bike in 34 hours...

Clean the frame espesially around the BB and check for cracks. if you can have someone else look while you flex the frame.
