Creaking noise coming from Deore shifter/brake area
My ride is a 2010 Giant Anthem with Deore shifters and brakes, I have about 300 miles on it.
When I move my handlebar left to right, there is a loud creaking noise coming from handlebar area. I managed to isolate the noise, it's coming from the left shifter and brake area.
When I loosen the left shifter and left brake lever, and push them upwards, the creaking stops. I then screw them back in their place, keeping about a 3 mm distance between them so they don't rub, and the creaking noise is immediately back. Really strange!
Has anyone had this before?
Any ideas as to what it could be?
