Cannondale bottom bracket noise
I have a Cannondale Synapse Sport with about 1000 miles on it and the bottom bracket has recently begun making a creaking noise. I took it into the shop and they said it was the derailer rubbing the chain and made an adjustment. now it creaks AND shifts poorly
I am taking it back in today, my question is: how long should the BB last? should it need repair/replacement after only 1000 miles of relatively flat riding?
Yep, my old Cannondale has the same problem - wish I'd had a master mechanic, but instead I had me pulling the BB and replacing it three times to get it right. Lots of teflon tape and 3 years later = no creak.
