    Who here owns or has riddent a Stache 8 Full SUS?

    I was super excited today I drove 2 hrs to ride this bike the dealership let me take it on an amazing 4 mile trail with a 700 foot climb and let me say I loved the bike!!!

    But I did not buy it. several times during my climb I heard a creaking popping noise coming form the bike usally when I would peddle down over a root on the steep climbs. I am wondering if anyone else has noticed this or had any issues. My dealer and I couldn't not make it do this sounds when I was at the shop but they are willing to order me another one. ive had issues in the past with breaking freehubs on trek bikes so I was very worried.

    Thoughts?

    Mine developed a really bad creak about 3 weeks after I bought it and I thought it was coming from the bb but wasn’t positive. Started cleaning and re-grease on the easy stuff first starting w the pedals...nothing. Moved on to the headset, that was it! Been creak free/quiet for a couple months now.

    You might get more response if you post this on the plus forum.

    The main pivot bolt on my Fuel EX 8 gets creaky from time to time. Grease, loctite on threads, and proper torque quiets it.
