Has anyone experienced creaking noises with this trainer when it's cold? Mine makes a strange noise that goes away after about 5 minutes. I have tried many adjustments and tire pressure variations.

I had a creak sound as well and there was something in the pump wrong. LBS sent it in and it came back fixed. I also noticed another creaking sound and found it to be the bottom bracket. It seems noise is more noticeable on the trainer than outside

I own one of these and a common experience from owners is that the device takes about 5 minutes to "warm up". I don't notice much noise, but the resistance changes abruptly after about 5 minutes.

Thanks. That has been my experience as well. I have also notice that I have to chose between having some tire slippage under load, or excessive noise(when cold)from too much pressure on the roller. It could be time for a tire change.
