Easton EA90 Aero Hubs..

Hey,

I've got a new pair of Easton EA90 Aeros and when I'm out of the saddle and torquing the handlebars I'm hear this creaking. Could be the bottom bracket as well, but I want to check out / readjust the hubs. Anyone ever done this? Any tips?

First, find out what's creaking. Put the old wheels back on and try the same manuvers. No creaking? Then it's the new wheels. Check that the spokes are tensioned properly, that the hubs are lubed correctly, that the QR's are tight, etc.

Not the wheels? Start here: http://www.sheldonbrown.com/creaks.html
