    Hey guys.

    I finally picked up my first real bike a week ago. 05 Specialized Hardrock Comp Disc. So far so good, however when I'm pedaling hard I get a creaking noise from the bottom bracket or chainring area.

    The bike can't have more than 20miles on it at best, but this noise isn't normal is it? I haven't had a chance to get over to my LBS, but I will have them check it out asap.

    Thanks.

    Not that uncommon for an aluminum frame to have a BB creak. I usually use a wrap or three of teflon tape to quiet the offending parts.

    Thanks for the responses guys.

    What is it exactly that could/should be wrapped?
