ok lets begin
i have a new bottom braket (shimano un-54) a new chain (shimano HG-40 ,very surprising 20$ low end chain) and not so nice shimano tourney (best of the tourney category) rear derailer , no name front derailler and a shimano rear freewheel (super wide or mega range type)
so as you see i have old parts and some parts which have around 1000 kms on them (around 700 miles iirc) everything is tuned real well and i have the smooth snappy shift every bike should have with an indexed system. The problem is I have that weird creaking sound when i pedal, cannot seem to locate from where it is comming!
It sound like the bottom braket is loose but its in spec and is operating flawlessly.
I have a lil bit of play on my freewheel and the rear bearing should be greased i think, could that be a contributing factor?
could the pedal create that much noise ?
excuse the errors my french brain is taking over tonight
