    Lyrik DH solo air steer tube creak

    I had a terrible creak in my headset last week. I took the bike in today and the LBS is saying the steer tube on my Lyrik is creaking at the steer tube/crown area. They said its actually loose. The fork is a 2010. Is this common or has anyone heard of this happening?

    Was happening on some of the older ones but never heard of this on the newer ones. Check with RS, they'll take care of you. Also, if you're using a King headset, they have a new conical split washer to help prevent creaking when used for more DH type applications.

    Have FUN!

    My LBS sent it into RS last week. They are going to replace the crown steer unit. I hope they do a rebuild on it when they have it apart.

    If they're replacing the uppers, then they have to.
