I have a 2003 XLT 1.0 and it also creaks. Does it creak when you pedal standing? I only have the noise when I am seated. I believe my creak is the seatpost, but it could be the saddle rails.

cables?

Sometime when you are hearing the creaking, reach done and wrap your hand around the cable cluster where it leaves the stops on the rear of the top tube. Small creaks easily get amplified in an aluminum frame.

As the other poster mentioned, seatpost and rails is also a good bet; easy to isolate this by lightening up on the seat when you hear the creak.

Check your pedals, take them out and try greasing the threads or using teflon tape...
