    Giant Talon 2 29er crank/bottom bracket creaking noise

    So I've been riding the trail on my Talon 2 and now have developed a serious creaking noise on each pedal stroke. What needs to be done? Bottom bracket replacement or removal and re-grease?

    My riding style is mainly cross country and a few jumps but I want to do more.

    Chances are the LBS never properly prep'd the bike (which should include removing and greasing the BB cups then re-torquing). So that is where I'd start, might try and get the LBS to do it for free since it should have been done in the first place.

    Great advice, thanks. I'll take care of it this weekend and provide feedback. Cheers.
