FSA Energy Crank Creaking/Clicking Sound?
I have a 34/50T FSA Energy crankset. It has about 1800 miles on it. It makes a creaking/clicking noise, especially when I am using the 34T chainwheel.
When it first developed this problem, a mechanic friend of mine removed the left-side crank and greased the splines on the spindle. The crank was re-installed and torqued to specs. The clicking noise disappeared for a time, but has now re-appeared.
I checked the chainwheel bolts-- they are Torx T-30s-- and they seem to be perfectly tight, but I do not have a torque wrench.
I'm now hearing the noise when using the 50T chainwheel as well.
I'd appreciate any advice any of you care to offer. Thanks in advance.
