It came back with a vengeance the other day. So I cleaned the drive train, figured getting caught in the rain may have been contributing to the problem. IT WORKED....for 15 miles.

    So now I am bashing my head against the wall for it is one of the most annoying noises a cyclist can experience. Does anyone have any solutions to this problem?

    As a reference this is exactly what it sounds like (not my bike...or video)

    That is most certainly not what I would want to deal with, although from the sounds of it we had/have virtually identical issues. I interestingly enough have the 2014 black on black frame. The noise is so invasive that I put the bike on the sidelines and broke out the LeMond (14 years young). Curious did the wrench at your shop try putting the green locktite that another poster had suggested?

    I am not ready to bring in Cannondale, as I bought the bike at a shop by my parents in NJ and I have only taken it to the local shop here (unfortunately it is the only shop around and I question the mechanics abilities...long story but I have many reasons). I am going to be bringing it to the next closest Cannondale shop as they have been around for ages and was going to have them clean and repack it and then install it with the green locktite to hopefully resolve this issue. After that the only real option I believe is to bring it back to the original shop I bought it from and see what they say

    Loctite did not come up in any of our discussions, but I can't say for certain the didn't try it.

    There are several green Loctite formulas. 609 and 641 are both bearing retaining compounds, I used 609, cleaned both surfaces with acetone, and pressed-in the FSA adapter. I have 2000 miles with no creaking. If I ever have a problem, meaning the surface is no longer true, I'll switch to one of the Bdop adapters that basically changes the BB30 to a press-fit type adapter. You can also switch to standard BB30 bearings and Wheels Mfg Delrin adapters, or just do the Parlee BB30/shimano bearings which are probably the simplest design. There are at least three options out there but if your BB is already noisy, the FSA adapter is no longer an option.

    Edit:
    The Bdop adapter is no longer on the site.

    Edit 2:
    Praxis has an awesome BB30/Shimano adapter now. That's my first choice after the FSA one fails.

    New at this forum but been lurking for a long time. I'm 33yrs old and from Belgium.

    My 2013 Caad10 also started to creak at the crank after a few rides.

    I'm a presision mechanical engineer with 15years professional experience in manufactering parts for automobile and pharmacutical industry.
    I dissasembled the bearing and did some measuring. Contact surface roundness was seriously out of tolerance. With some specialty tools I reamed the hole in the frame and remounted the same bearing with a liberal amount of teflon grease. Problem solved and still creak free after 5000kms.

    Asian low budget manufactering quality...

    My suggestion: If you ride a bike, start to learn how to fix it and stop crying like babies or go walking.

    I don't think many bother to check the BB shell to see if it is within spec.

    You probably just voided your warranty, but to each their own. I would just switch to a different bb or told cannondale to warranty the frame with one that is in spec.

    Glad it fixed your problem though. Unless I got it used, I would never drill the frame.

    It's also a bit of a reach to just say "learn how to fix it" when the described fix involves disassembling a bearing, measuring tolerances, purchasing specialty tools, and reaming the bottom bracket. Especially if you screw up you've already voided the warranty and you're left SOL

    Machinists are a special breed of people, yet a class that keeps the world turning. Just nod your head and move on. lol

    Anecdotally, the warranty is probably still in place because no-one in the warranty review process is hip to the aline-bore he did. I doubt anyone at Cannondale or the shop could look at the BB and tell it was corrected.

    Yeah, I know a few machinists myself...I know how it works.

    While his warranty is probably fine, someone that tries to do the same and fails probably won't be as lucky.

I currently ride a Carbon bike and the CAAD10 felt great! So much so I must find one. The CAAD10 feels like a nice Carbon bike. I want to join the CAAD10 Cult but only flat/matte black will due. I explored painting options and it seems that is just money down the hole($400?). Found some great deals on 2013 BLK INC, but refuse to buy since I cant upgrade it to a mechanical group. I must either get a 2014 CAAD10 3, or 2014 Black Inc the later of which a little hard to justify price-wise but it does have the SRAM & I wouldn't need to change a single thing ever other then maybe a seat. I am trying to convince myself now that I probably would spend the same amount as the current BLK Inc cost over the course of 1-2 years with upgrades so maybe its cheaper bite the bullet. I think I would be pretty happy geting the 2013 SRAM FORCE model and possibly attempt to paint a flat/matte black myself. My current bike is a FELT Z4 which I will probably keep, but I need to join the CULT!

    I know posted this already in the "What bike do you have" stickie, but I wanted to officially join the cult..

    2012 CAAD8 7 Sora -

    This is my first real road bike and my first foray in to Road Cycling. So far it has been very fulfilling and it seems to have taken hold like a drug.....

    Oh, and ignore the adjustable stem....just using it to figure the correct rise and length for a fixed stem replacement. Factory stem made the cockpit at odds with my physique.

    Welcome to the Cult, a CAAD 8 is a good, solid entry bicycle, you should enjoy the miles this one will give you. Post some pics when you get the stem sorted out.

    Did you color the "K" on the SL-K crank to match? Or is that factory color?

    I"ve never seen a bicycle that needed a black chain-ring so badly in my life. Great looking bicycle though, I pedal next to one like that a couple times per week.

    Do the prescribed fix, put in waterproof high quality grease, use the correct Loctite product and reassemble using the correct torque values. the longer you wait the worse it gets and the more frustrated you become.

    Manuals Accessories Click on the BB/PF30 section, open the pdf file and the instructions are there for your use.
