They oughta start betting pools for these "creak" threads. It always turns out to be something different. Last season I had a creak that, for the life of me, I just couldn't track down. It would creak when I pedaled, when I coasted but moved my body, sitting down, standing up, on the bike stand, etc. I looked at all the usual suspects and then some (saddle rails, water bottle cage, knees).
Finally discovered that the sound was coming from a seatpost shim that I never even realized was there (for some reason the post came shimmed when I bought it, unbeknownst to me). Go figure.
