I had a similar problem and thought for sure it was in the bottom bracket. I had my mechanic take it apart, lube, and reassemble it twice with no luck; I was really getting pissed off. It turns out that the problem was a broken pedal bearing, I replaced the pedals and now it’s perfect. I discovered the pedal was broken by clipping into one side (leaving the other side unclipped) and pedaling and then trying the other side. In my case the right side was quite and the left side made the creaking sound. Your creak might not be the same problem, but it’s worth a look. Good luck!
