Excellent sale technique. Don’t think I’ll be rushing out to purchase the BBInfinate kit just yet.
Nope, from what I’ve read it’s not the best.A trip to a Trek dealer.
They can provide you with an oversized BB bearing to help it, but it may need the BB repair that they have been carrying out on quite a few of them.
Your frame has a lifetime warranty so let them check the carbon repair is not needed.
BB90 is not the best.
Thanks for the reply, from what I’ve read, loctite does seem to be the preferred option For many.It's a BB90 BB unfortunately - there isn't a huge amount that you can do. From what I've read using Loctite 609 can help reduce the creaking, ask your LBS to reinstall the bearings using this.
I’ve a 2012 Domane BB went after a couple of years one side had ovalised the frame. Trek repaired the frame and the dealer fitted new bearings under warranty. A couple years on the bearings went again but the housing was good.I have a 2017 Trek Domane S5 with a very creaky bottom bracket.
What in the forums opinion would be a suitable replacement?
from what I’ve read, it seems a common problem with these kind of bottom bracket. I’ll speak to the dealer and see what they say. Like you say I won’t hold my breath.I wonder if Trek consider this a frame warranty matter? Great if they do don't hold your breath. I could see this getting very expensive for them if the hold their hands up.
Didn’t mean to sound condescending.Fair enough, I thought I had a BB problem turned out the noise was because the torque on the thru axle wasn’t enough. I’ve also heard that the IsoSpeed can make a noise sometimes.
