    Constant creaking from carbon rear triangle on 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!

    I have a Pivot 5.7c that was creaking just a bit. I put a little grease on the frame where the rear through axle grips the carbon. That solved it.

    Brillliant! I will give that a try though I think because the drop outs on this frame are aluminum I am less optimistic, aluminum drop outs and chain stay but integrates with carbon seat stays

    Oh, yeah, probably wont do the trick. How old is your chain? My son's had about 600 miles, swapped a new one and worked for him. Could it be the pedals? Remove, wipe down threads, lube, replace?

    It's elusive it sounds like its generating from frame itself, might try headset next if drop out service fails. Could be a full tear down!
