I bought a Seven last year, full DA with Ksyrium wheels. Since then, I've been trying to isolate a creak in my rear end (bike's rear end..) I think I've actually isolated it to the rear skewer. Has anyone else experienced this? Any idea on how to fix it?

Creaking skewers are not unheard of though usually it's designs that rely on a concave washer and a rounded lever body assembly. Creaking also can happen when riders position their QR in such a way that when closed part of the lever touches the frame (never a good idea)

Last but not least, every now and then Ksyriums creak. Drop some oil on each spoke nipple and also where the spokes meet the hub body.

I experienced this on the Ksyriums I owned. I would put a couple of drops of oil on both the front and rear skewers where is frame contacts the skewers.
