Alright, I just got this sweet Surly Long Haul Trucker build. My lbs didn't do a proper fitting, and put the drop bars too low. The stem was too shallow. I had them swap it out, and ever since I hear a creaking whenever I shift the bike beneath me. I've tightened it up as tight as possible, and have tried various amounts of torque just to make sure it wasn't too tight. But it's still doing it. I brought it back in, but they didn't know what I was talking about.
I have ritchey bars and a "Dimension" stem. I used to have a Felt 6 degree flip flop stem before they changed it out. Any ideas? Am I just a hypochondriac, or will my bars break off half way up a hill?
