    nice looking ride there.

    As for the creaking, I found one earlier this year I swore was from the BB, but it turns out is was a weak spring in the freehub. So don't limit yourself to where you think it's coming from.

    And the binder bolt for the seatpost.

    I once had a squeak that was driving me insane and I couldn't find the source. I ended up completely disassembling the bike and putting it back together, and luckily that took care of it.

    Wow. Mucked up on the front of the head tube but clean tires and clean where mud would fly up from the tires (especially the rear). Was the bike mounted on a vehicle rack while you went off roading?

    That's typical for here in SoCal. It's misty in the morning and the dust sticks to the area of the bike that gets wet from the mist. Happens on my cross bike here also.

    make sure your pedals are tight, a lot of creaks that come in the shop are stopped in the first place we check.

    Hot dang, tell me where you rode (like a routeslip or something from bikely/mapmyride).

    I'm near Yorba Linda and i need to take my CX bike out for a spin, as long as it's not too steep (my bike is a singlespeed).

    Sometimes when I get a mystery creak and do not know where it is you can try lubing your derailleur hanger
    If you are not crashin you are not riding hard enough
