    Have you guys done the steerer tube from the bottom of the Crown, too. I did the stanchions (upside down) where they meet the Crown but I'm still experiencing the creeking noise. I used the Loctite 290 after using their Klean and Prime activator.

    Hmmm...ok. So, I applied a mix of 290 and 609 to the bottom of the crown/ stanchion interface, twice, and the steerer/crown once. Let dry for 24, then set upright for another 24. No luck. Should I do the top of the stanchion interface, and the steerer? If I do the stanchions, won't that lock the top caps?

    Did you apply first the 290, let 24 hour cure and then apply the 609 and cure for 24 hours?

    Only apply on the stanchion/crown interface (and on the steerer/crown if you are 100% sure the creak comes from there), don't apply it anywhere else.

    I still can't get rid of my creak. It's definitely coming from the fork- swapping to a rigid fork eliminates the noise, and I can just barely get the fork to do it in my hands.

    I mixed the two, then applied and allowed to cure for 24hr upside down, 24hr rightside up. I can see a thin ring of stuff in the stanchion/crown joint, but not under the steerer. I can try the top interface of the steerer, and remove the crown race...

    Why did you mix them? That defeats the purpose of each loctite.

    My thought as well. Not seeing the benefit.

    I guess I figured lowered viscosity with higher binding strength? So that it would wick into the crevices but still be strong enough to not give up over time? Because some people said that 290 didn't work, but 609 wasn't thin enough to penetrate?

    Thank you all for this thread. I have bought a used Specialized stumpjumper carbon and have the same annoying problem with my FOX 32 fork. I tried the oil/ teflon and let it the fork stand uppside down overnigth, but that did not work. I wrote FOX services Germany, but they has not answerd yet. I guess the next step is to trie tho degrease the thing and trie the locktite solution, but there is also no garantee for succes. I Think it depnds if the fluid really can creep in between. Stupid that locktite write on their website they have the absolute solution to make pressfit fittings ultimatively stable when lockite is applied before pressing the fork togehter. Why Doesn't FOX use Locktite right from the start?
