Crank Noise

949 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Godless Communist
There is a noise in my cranks (Stylo 3.3 GXP) that sounds like it a quiet crackle or almost a creak whenever I put pressure on each side. It's something that sounds harmless enough but was just wondering if anybody knew what it could be.

When I get noises in my crankset, it usually means it's time to break it all down and clean and lube everything.
One adage says that if you hear it on only one side it's probably a pedal; if you hear it on both downstrokes, it's probably BB/crank. Tighten down your crankarms first, and if that doesn't cure it, do as NYrr496 advises: pull it, clean it, grease it, and re-install.
