Spinergy Wheels Rear Hub Creak

After totally rebuilding my Orca - twice - I come to discover my creak is coming from the rear hub of the Xaero Lite wheel. Sound is exactly like a crank/BB under torque creak.

Dang. I love these wheels.

I could take it apart and rebuild it but before I do, does anybody have any suggestions other than a general regrease/rebuild?

Thanks.

Spinergy hubs are known to creak. Take the axle off and liberally grease the insides
