A friend has a Novaro trifono with an Ultegra group. There is a creaking noise coming from the crank area. I have removed and torqued everything in sight to no avail. Any suggestions out there?

Are you sure it is the crank? Pedals and cleats will do it to if not clean or lubed and under torque (say, climbing out of the saddle).

Not to ask the obvious, but it is all I can think of.
A long shot, but...cory

I spent a long time chasing a creak I thought was coming from the crank, did all the stuff you did and couldn't find it. Turned out it was coming from the saddle clamp on the seatpost--it would creak when I rocked slightly, exactly as the right pedal came down. See if greasing the rails and retorquing the clamp helps.
