I bought a specialized stumpy and got the creaking from what appeared to be the BB also. However it could be:
1) Your pedals creaking. Loosen them off and re-grease
2) The BB casing which screws into the frame. Thats what mine had. Because under 1 year, I had under warranty so shop took it appart and regreased it. Said manufacturers did no torque BB to correct value which they said can happen sometimes.
3) Bearing in the BB. - Loose cranks may hint at this.
4) Your seat post! Just confirm that creaking still there where you are not on the saddle.
If you want to save money, perhaps look at getting disc brake on the front only as I barely use my rear disc brake since it has so much power.
Confirm you have disc compatable wheels and forks with your shop if unsure.
