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.
