This is really starting to annoy me It took me a month to get a silent ride on my new SCR2, and that lasted a couple of days and it's been creaking, cracking and squeaking again like it's in its death-throes ever since. I've heard rusted-up clunkers make less noise. The original causes were the seatpost, seatpost clamp, saddle-rails and the metal on the end of the cable-sheaths rubbing in the lugs where the brake-cables join the head-tube. So last night I re-greased and lubed the appropriate points / parts once again in the vain hope that they were to blame again. Nope. Still sounding like a metallic percussion section as I ride, and this morning there was a squeak just to add to the cacophony. Noticed that it's now continuing when I'm out of the saddle, so I suspect that the cranks, BB threads etc need looked at next. Sigh. A quick Google this morning reveals that others have had exactly the same problems and the same causes (including the rear wheel snappng spokes like no-one's business, which I was also afflicted with). I have to say that it's not showing Giant up in a good light - even my Halfords Carerra MTB was near silent 99% of the time ! Does anyone else have a creakier bike than a Giant ?
