Couldn't be, the only sounds my ass make sound more like a machine gun.G4VNJ said:maybe it your ass??
I really don't like this seatpost design. I think I'll try to get a rider on the next bailout bill that will require all seatpost manufactures, whether imported or domestically manufactured, to license their head design from Thomson.sanjuro said:With the hundred other moving parts underneath the seatpost, what makes you think it is the seatpost?
Did that... that's how I determined it was the seatpost and not something around the headtube. The sound comes through the frame and makes it hard to determine where it's coming from.sanjuro said:BTW, I would do a simple test: take the seatpost out (or put a different seatpost in) and jump on the bike and see if it makes a creak or not.
I'll try taking the seatpost apart tonight to see if it helps... either that or continue stripping wallpaper. Everything is already clean, the bike is brand f'n new and creeks like this. I rode it around, shifting weight around, hoping around the driveway with the seatpost out and never heard a sound.scrublover said:take your seat off, take everything apart on the head of the post. clean, regrease, reassemble.
if that doesn't work, and you've already got a tone of grease on the post/in the seattube, either a new post will fix it, or something else is making the noise.
bottom bracket/cranks/pedals if it's when you're weighting the bike fore and aft would be my next guess.
