My Landy MTB seems to be rebelling yet again. It's been creaking and squeaking for almost a month now - I've had various things replaced. The first, which was done a couple of weeks ago was the headset bearings - after being ridden fairly hard (I live up a two mile long hill, which means a lot of strain!) or being off roaded (happens often) it has a creak whenever I turn the handlebars.
Like I say, a couple of weeks ago I creaked my way to the LBS and asked what they thought it was. The reply was the headset bearings which I duly paid the £20ish privilege of having them replaced. All was well for a couple of weeks, until I took it round some woods today, where the noise came back. Grrrr
It seems to be when I have weight on the front of the bike that it's at its worst - I've asked my dad about this and he wedged the front wheel between his legs and gave the handlebars a shake, which replicated the sound exactly. He first thought it was the front wheel (he then sounded shocked when I asked to swap his front wheel in!) and then the forks. I'm now completely lost as to what this could be - any ideas?
Reply soon - before it drives me crazy!!!
