Update: Took it back to the shop I bought it at, they said it wasn't torqued correctly. When I mentioned to the mechanic everything they had done to it, and it still wasn't fixed, he said "Wavy washer? This shouldn't have a wavy washer on it"

He then pulled it back apart, removed the wavy washer, and put the crank back together... without torquing the crank with a torque wrench (which is what he said the problem was when I first walked in). He said if it's still a problem he'll replace the BB and crank under warranty with something like a Praxis? BB that threads in.

Anyways, she rode the bike today, noise came right back, so I guess it's going back to get the crank and BB replaced.
