    FSA crank / BB30 noise

    Hi I own a cannondale carbon synapse with a FSA carbon light crank that is ticking on stand up climbs. I have bought the bike under warranty for the same problem and they said they greased the bottom bracket bearings and it did work till now.
    I torqued down the crank to Nm 55 = 42 ft lbs. as it shows on the non drive side BUT there is a outer ring with holes that I am not sure what it's there for ? I'm thinking that holds the pedal arm ?? And the other side (drive side) is hollow
    Do any of you have any solution to stop the ticking ??? again only happens when standing on a climb..

    Noises are not a text based thing to guess from way out here..

    , try taking it all apart, cleaning things ,
    greasing the threads, on all the bolts, and such as you put it back together..
