could it be a slight bit of play in your crank arms rubbing on the spindle. I had this problem, pulled the cups and greased em then lubed up the square taper before torquing down the crank arms. Problem fixed! I hate a noisy bike! Nothing like knowing if you needed your two wheeled partner to complete clandestine operations she's up to the challenge and wont squeal on ya when youre taking fire.
