    SRAM XX Cassette Creaking

    So had a terrible creak and thinking I finally found it in the XX cassette. On my carbon hardtail it just seemed to amplify too. I had tightened crank bolts, ring bolts, change wheels (moving the cassette), checked skewers....all the normal suspects.

    Today I changed it to a new XO cassette and first ride the creaking has gone away. Has anyone else experienced this creaking with an XX cassette?? The noise was killing me but I just hate to ditch this nice cassette that is uber expensive. It's got miles left in it.

    I'm experiencing it now. Very annoying. It sounds like my bike is going to crack.

    Guys,

    If you have not already, try some copper grease (Ti Prep) on the splines of the freehub body. Stopped the creaking that my XX cassettes were making and I do this as a matter of course now...

    Thanks, I'll give that a try. I have to change my free hub on my Crests. I had a 1050? cassette on there and it chewed holes in the freehub. So I went for the XX and it creaks. Not impressed by SRAM products.
