Chasing creaks

I like my bikes silent, so I'm forever chasing down the causes of creaks. I just solved a creak that took me ages to track down. It was a creak every pedal stoke when standing on the pedals. I tried all the usual dismantling/cleaning/greasing of bottom bracket/cranks/quick releases/pedals/chain ring bolts but the creak remained. Despite everything I know about how creaks travel around bike tubes I was absolutely convinced the creak was coming from the bottom bracket area. Finally in desperation I adjusted the headset: creak gone. When will I ever learn
