Dura Ace BB questions, of a creeeeking nature.(6 posts)

Dura Ace BB questions, of a creeeeking nature.James

I wanted to see if anyone has had a 7700 BB creeeeek and fixed it by applying Anti-Sieze? I hate working with this stuff, but I was advised to try it.
Also has anyone had a creeeeeek with their 7700 BB, changed the position of the crank arms and fixed it? Any advise would be great.
Try replaving the chainring boltsHBPat

I know you've probably considered this but alloy chainring bolts tend to creak. I'd try putting some steel or ti bolts in there, or at least lubing and tightening your current ones, and seeing if that helps. It is at least worth trying if you haven't already

had a creaking sound coming from the crank area today when I stood. I saw your post, thought 'what the hell, let's check the chainring bolts', and found that they were hellishly loose.

This may sound dumb, but I had a creeking noise for two weeks which I was sure was coming from my BB and turned out that my seat was a tiny bit loose. Tightening it took away the noise.

Good Luck
Grease works just as well as anti-siezeKerry

It's not the choice between grease or anti-sieze that makes the noise go away. Assuming it's the BB (not the cranks, rings, pedals, cleats, seat post, bar/stem, hubs, spokes, etc.), then the key is having threads clean, greased (or whatever) and properly torqued.

I had that problem towards the end of the first year on my Aegis. I took the bike back to the LBS and they loosened the BB and re-torqued it. I haven't had any creaking now for over a year (knock on wood).
