I've read all the posts concerning creaks with the vector comps and have regreased and inspected everything possible. The creak noise comes back after just 10 miles or so!! What's next? Thanks

The problem is coming from the Axle caps. They are aluminum, and when combined with aluminum drop outs on a fork they creak like hell. It's a warranty issue. Ask your LBS to get you the steel axle caps from Rolf. This should be a warranty and don't let em charge you for it. I work at a shop in Miami and it was a common occurance with our Treks that came with the Vector Comps. After you replace the cap there's no more creaking.
