    Constant creaking from rear triangle on a 2010 yeti 575

    I think the title says it all. I can't find any cracks and I have pulled apart and lubricated the bottom bracket and checked everything I can but it seems like the creaking is induced during stress on the triangle during hard pedalling when the triangle is under stress from the drivetrain. My guess is the sound is generated where the carbon meets the aluminum but i could be wrong. How the heck do I rectify this issue? The constant racket has me at my wits end. Thankful for any help!
    Keep the rubber side down

    I was chasing this down for te longest time. It ended up being my QR skewer. It was only during high torque pedaling.

    Other issues could be the hub, saddle rails, rail/post interface.

    It could very well be the carbon insertion point on seatstays. Maybe drip some tri flow down there and see if that helps. Maybe some thinned out epoxy to that area?

    Try posting in he Yeti forum and see what 575 owners think.
