I have a 1985 Raleigh Team USA with all original drive train components that have been fairly well maintained over the years. The last few weeks, there's been a louder and louder creaking sound coming from the BB or crankset, it's hard to pinpoint it.
I'm assuming the parts are just reaching the end of their usefulness and probably just should be upgraded. What I'm not quite sure of though, is if some of the more modern crankset/BB combos, like:
Will they even work on an older bike like mine?
Or, in anyone's experience, is this something just upgrading the BB would be sufficient to fix?
Thanks for any info you can give.
