    Squeaking Noise Coming From the Front

    Hey Guys,

    I was out riding the local trail last night and I started experiencing a squeaking noise when I turned the handlebars. It doesn't appear to be the shock, but I may be wrong. Anybody ever experienced this before?

    I'll go with the weird suggestion first: it's probably your cables rubbing the frame. Put some electrical tape on the frame where the cables contact anything and ride it around, if it stops squeaking then you've found your issue. If it is the cables, then you could stick with electrical tape (I do) or you could get some fancy frame protector patches.

    Otherwise, make sure your headset is adjusted properly.
    Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?

    Also check your front quick release...

    My front brakes will squeek if the quick release isnt tight enough...

    I second this, I had squeaking that I tracked down to my cables rubbing together when I turned the handlebars.
