Last fall I upgraded my '04 Klein Palomino with a Maverick cartridge bearing mono-link and a new rear shock/strut. These are the same parts that are used on the Maverick 7.2. A few months ago I changed out my BB which I had run for 2 yrs with the same exact RaceFace 108 X 73mm model. The bearings jammed on the 1st BB which RaceFace warrantied. The replacement creaked like crazy no matter how much I lubed it up. I returned it and my LBS recommended a FSA 103 X 73 Ti E-derailleur specific BB which I'm now running.
The creak is less,but is still there especially under heavy loads. I've gunked bike anti-seize on the BB and shell, crank arms and bolts...no help!!!!
Has anyone heard of an ISIS crankset getting worn and then creaking? It's at least a 4-yr old Race Face 5-bolt that definitely presses on a lot easier than it used to. Thanks in advance for any new ideas because I'm fresh out of them.
