    Squeak in Truvativ Giga Pipe DH Team

    You guys are always dead on the problem. Has anyone had a squeak in the bottom bracket of a Truvativ Giga Pipe Team DH? My LBS pulled it apart and regreased it twice, and the squeak is still there. I did ride in the rain and mud at Snowshoe and hosed it clean. I have only put in a day and a half of riding.

    Thanks,
    David

    Don't point the hose directly at the bottom bracket.
    ISIS bottom brackets rarely last more than 6 months for me.
    To help with the creaking, pull the bottom bracket out. Thoroughly degrease the bottom bracket shell and the cups. Wrap the threads on the cups with 3 to 4 layes of white plumber's tape. Regrease the threads on both the shell and the cups. Put it all back together and torque it to spec. Make sure the interface between the bottom bracket and crank is also thoroughly greased.
