    Specialized 2014 Epic Bottom Bracket creaking

    So I have looked at all of the threads about bottom brackets and I am having a real hard time understanding why Specialized can make a high end product and shove plastic bottom bracket in it and call it good. That being said. Who's got the answer for a bottom bracket that will not creak. I have ran the Wheels manufacturing treaded bottom bracket, their aluminum press fit, ad the SRAM PF-30. The only one that seems to work is the SRAM one which only lasts for about 6 months. You would think the more secure you could make the bottom bracket the less chance of it creaking. Des anyone have a good fix for this? I have both a aluminum world cup and a carbon one. They both suffer from the same thing.

    Had the same issue with a 2014 S-Works Epic. Specialized recommended using 3M 420 epoxy. Worked like a champ for me and was still able to remove it without issue.
