    Creaky-weakey bb.

    About 6 months ago I fitted a new top-of-the-range Shimano bb and a new XTR front mech to my Gemini. Being winter time UK, I've only used the bike mostly for few minute commutes to work and back. About a month ago, I started getting a distinctive creak from the bb area when pedalling only. I'm ready to strip it all down again if necessary and refit and retighten. Does this creak sound normal for a bb/mech rebuild as I suppose over time that parts will settle in and I might have to tighten up again to compensate?

    If there's a quick fix that'll be appreciated but if you reckon it's better I go back to the beginning I'll go with that.

    I would just suggest making sure everything is tight or take it all apart and put it back together, it doesnt take long and it will probally fix the problem.But first check to make sure the arms are tight.
