    My Satori creaks.......help!

    Love this bike but the last 3 or 4 rides the creaking seems to be getting louder. Sound is coming from mid frame pivits? I ride in Colorado/Utah so pretty dry. I dont ride with music so turning it up louder will not be any help. Any help or ideas would be great.

    creaking while seated only? if so, look to the seatpost clamp. pull the saddle off, clean dirt/dust from rails and clamp, grease bolt very well and re-assemble. i know that creak well and thought it might be coming from my bb. nope, the seat.

    rog

    Has it stayed quite since you greased the rear axle?
