IDK.

But that's kind of the problem, right?

Well, THAT'S embarrassing!!!! The creaking noise the Canyon was making was the SEATPOST, NOT the press fit BB I rather extravagantly replaced. Boy, is there egg on MY face! A little assembly paste, properly torque down the screw, and....... silence. ALL the creaking noise gone.

I also raised the saddle the 3mm I'd lowered it by, and felt a LOT more able to put down power. I rode exactly the same route as last night, but 5 minutes faster over 22.6 miles, AND I felt a whole lot stronger. Maybe it's the position, maybe it's the relief from having solved the riddle, maybe it's that it's 5 degrees cooler - the wind was pretty much the same. I don't know. I DO know that yesterday I was tired and uncomfortable in the saddle and found it hard to push hard, and today was very different.

We have all had a minimum word limit to satisfy ;)

I was super in to botany when I was in school so I took quite a few biology and plant physiology classes. I'm just delighted that there is an alternative context for the root "turgid" than what I have seen before :p

I had an SL7 Tarmac in my stand the other day for a brake bleed and creaking noise from the BB.

Brakes definitely needed a bleed, but the seatpost and clamp wedge were absolutely dry. Added some carbon paste and all the noises disappeared.

Actually not. I think you're butthurt that I crushed your baseless criticism of a generation.

I guess the Lady Wildcats aren't out yet. I forgot about the double elimination action. They face the Beavs next.

NOW you tell me!

I don't feel too bad about replacing the BB. I'm pretty sure the Wheels Mfg. one is a better product, and I am a big guy. BUT I wish I'd thought of the seatpost first.....

I've done quite a few rides out of Whitewater, there are some fun roads out there.

Yeah, we’ve done quite a few rides/tours in WI. Door Co. x 3, Kettle Morraine a few times, the Driftless Area, Stevens Point a lot.

My BBRight R2 creaked... from the saddle (loose on the rail itself) and the cleat. The oh-so-terrible BB was always fine.

Generally a thread-together Wheels BB solves a lot of creaking problems on press-fit bikes, after trying the usual remedies, of course.

My old hardtail MTB needed a seatpost regrease pretty regularly or it would creak, even out of the saddle.

Ouch giving up a 5 spot is not what the Mighty Owls wanted.

DougRNS 06-03-22 08:46 PM

9 runs in the 8th. Not good. The Mighty Owls will have win this one without me. I'm going to bed.

Time to ride. I wanted to do another 100, but my friends got burned by Monday’s century so today’s ride is 63 miles. I will ride to/from the start for an extra 18 miles. Good enough.

You young bucks have morning energy I see. It takes me an hour or so just to wake up enough to move around the house. Enjoy the ride.

The Mighty Owls and I have something in common; we both have trouble stopping the bleeding.:roflmao2:

My first round is finished and I will shortly begin moving around the house. Meanwhile the wife is madly cleaning the house in preparation for the arrival of the cleaning lady.
