    Hello from West Sussex

    Pedalling hard to keep head above water in life in general.
    Joined the forum to try to communicate with another forum member (seatrain) who in 2012 had the precise mech prob (creaking chainset) I have with a 7800 dura ace chainset. It's possible that he find found the answer to the riddle, fingers crossed.
    I have become more or less competent at most aspect of bike mechanics and maintenance over the years but every now and again a forum might be the answer. I've learned most things the hard way, perhaps this might allow me to find the easy way.

    Welcome to BF, HD, (Royal Army veteran?) glad to have another UK member here at BF. I guess you have been in the Mechanics Forum, possibly, whichever forum helped you I'm glad that youo may have solved your problem. Never heard of a DA chainset with creaking noises before, hope the solution works out for both of you. What bike are you currently riding?

    Bill, it's a titanium serotta and I think I may shamefully have to take it to an expert to crack this problem. What next eh.

    Now resolved. Used copper grease instead of lubricating grease on the bottom bracket. Generally a better option but with titanium bikes even more so. Creak gone. Delighted to say. Will now use copper grease on all anti seize applications. Will use normal lubricating grease where lubrication is needed.
