    Upset 2019 jeffsy AL 27.5 creaking noise

    I just got the bike and I have rode it about 5 times. watered it down to clean it. Nothing too crazy low pressure. Now i have a creak coming from a pivot I believe. Has anyone gone thru this and if so how did you stop it?

    Remove the pivot bolt, clean, regrease, add loctite and torque to spec. That should fix the creaking. I usually have to do this every few months on all my pivot bolts to keep things quiet.

    I've had dozens of suspension bikes, every one of them creaked at some point. And that point usually involved water.

    Tracking down where it's coming from is usually the hardest part; that and the fact that it's usually hard to recreate on a workstand.

    My Capra, I needed to tighten some of the pivots and the shock mount after a couple rides. The axle and dropout/derailleur hanger is another common place for lose bolts to cause a creak. Get some Loctite 243, and like JT said, remove, clean, grease, loctite and torque to spec.
