    Devinci BB30 creaking

    I have a new Devinci Wooky Carbon frameset with a Chris King BB30 and a Specialized S-Works carbon crank (XX spider with WickWerks rings) and cannot get it to stop creaking.

    I thought it was the stock bottom bracket from specialized with the carbon sleeve that was rubbing a bearing so I replaced it with a new Chris King bottom bracket and installed the crank with a light coat of grease.

    It still creaks though, non-drive side only. I changed pedals, checked chainring bolts, nothing seems to cure it and its really annoying. People keep asking me during races what the god awful noise coming from my bike is.

    Any suggestions?

    Devinci BB30 creaking

    Bb 30 creaking is a reoccurring issue. Here is one suggestin that seems to work.
    Remove crank and bearings
    Clean bearings and shell of grease
    Use a medium locktite on the bearings and the shell.
    Reassemble and let set up.

    This seems to work very well.

    Devinci BB30 creaking

    Thanks! But it creaked after installing a new CK bb, once with green pressfit loctite and then again with antiseize, and a light cost of grease on everything.


    I did seem to fix it though!
    A heavy coating of grease on the wavy washer and the two spacers it contacts.

    I finally got so annoyed I decided to grease everything one piece at a time.
