    It shouldn't creak. It's a composite BB in an Al shell. Usually where metal to metal is. There are other places a creak can come from, and still sound like it's from the BB. I put Ti bolts on my Thomson post and it creaked. I just lubed them. Check skewers(add some grease to the axle and ends) pedals, seat post, headset, handlebar.

    I agree. I purchased some new pedals, and I will grease the skewers and check everything. I will post results.

    Thx for input !
