    prophet with replacment swing arm creaking again?

    I just got a new rear swing arm put on my prophet replaced under warrenty due to my last swing arm creaking. The sound only happens when I really crank on it while climbing either standing or sitting. I just got done cleaning the seat post, peddels, crankset, installed new chain, cleaned my wheel set / hubs / wheelset qr / seat post clamp, cable guides. Just installed a new pivot bolt, shock bolts. Should I just ride my prophet and just ignore the sound or might there be another frame issue? Does the creaking rear swing arm cause an issue? And why would cannondale replace the swing arm if there was not an issue?

    Help

    You will most likely need new rear hub bearings. I had this problem with creaking, I took the bearings out and they felt fine but since new ones have gone in I have no heard a sound out of them.
