Cane Creek S2 (1") headset question
I just got my mew bike last night(Habanero Custom Cross) in the mail. Took it out today for her maiden voyage. Everything was great until I got to my turnaround point. Besides the headwind my "new" bike began a wonderful
"creaking" noise. It is coming from the headtube, more specifically the lower end at the fork race. The noise happens under weight more loudly than not.
I double checked the bolts and made sure that they were not over tight. I noticed that this headset uses cartridge bearings. Are they supposed to have the healthy dose of grease that the older style do. If so, then that is most likley my problem. I did check some older posts that recommended greasing the entire sterrer(sp). Let me know if you have heard of this before and if the fixes are just.
It is no fun having a new bike that makes a noise that others have to be saying "What the hell is wrong with that guys bike???"
Thanks in advance.
