Newbie "Bike creaking noises"
Hi there, been paying through the nose for repairs recently and was wondering if anyone here could diagnose a problem I have.
There seems to be a rather loud creeking noise coming from somewhere on the bike when i ride it, all i do at the moment it oil the chain and gears, i dont really know if there is something major wrong that needs replacing or just a bit of oil somewhere?
I have a giant TCR road bike
My bike's better than me!
You many find the following links helpful in tracking it down:
It's usually just a matter of patiently removing, cleaning,
re-lubricating, and re-torquing fasteners until it quiets down.
One of the things overlooked is the seat rails where they enter the seat. I had a creak on one of my bikes that drove me nuts for weeks. I finally figured out that it is where the rails go into the seat in the rear. I keep threatening to do something about it but it's about new seat time anyway so....
