Hey folks!,

tldr, removing, cleaning up and reinstalling bottom bracket fixed the issue.

Not asking for anything here, just putting this out there in case someone gets as frustrated as me. I had a creaky crank problem that was driving me nuts! I found a ton of great suggestions to fix the problem but nothing worked for me.

I tried:

  1. cleaning the rear dropouts
  2. making sure my crank bolts were tightened to the correct torque
  3. removing cranks, cleaning everything up and greasing crank bolts (then tighten to correct torque)

Nothing worked and then I removed and cleaned up the bottom bracket and shell really well and reinstalled and voila! Golden silence. yay!
