    My crank just started creaking. Help

    I was riding my rockhopper last night and the crank started making some small creaking type noises then again today whilst riding it started getting worse.

    Any ideas what i should do? I oiled it which did nothing

    It's probably loose. Oiling it, just made it well... oily. If you don't have the tools, or more importantly don't know what you're doing, (no offense, but it kind of reads like that could be the case) take it into the shop. I wouldn't ride it until it's fixed, as you can ruin a decent bottom bracket that way.

    There are several styles of bottom brackets and crank interfaces and even a few other problems that could be causing your creaking noise. It's almost impossible to diagnose it over the net, so have your shop take a look.
