    How do you fix a creaking bike? Annoying. It's not a loud creak, but it's there. And it's only there pedalling under load, so it's near-impossible to isolate. When I got the bike serviced last, I asked them to take a look at it. Their answer after the service was that "you'd expect that with this kind of bike. Which was a useful answer on one level - it means that I know I need to try another LBS.

    Anyway, it's a Specialized Sport - alu frame, low-end Shimano groupset. If it's only when I pedal, then I'm guessing it must be something to do with the cranks/bottom bracket.

    Any thoughts on possible easy fixes? I'm selling it in a couple of weeks, so I'm not planning on replacing the BB or anything like that, but if there's something obvious I should try then I'd love to hear it.
