headset creaking noice...(1 post)

headset creaking noice...gnailuh
Nov 16, 2002 6:46 PM
i bought a used bike and the headset was way too tight, but made no noice. it is a giant tcr-1 with the cane creek headset. i took off the fork and cleaned out and regreased the headset and adjusted the tightness. but now i hear a creaking noice when i turn the fork from side to side... can't really tell if it's the headset or the cables rubbing against each other... my guess it's the headset. i head it when i'm climbing and the fork is moving slightly from side to side.

what could be causing this? should i take it off and reclean and regrease?

thanks.
