i have a 2003 Norco rampage and the bottom bracket seems to be creaking alot. the bike is only like
4 weeks old. the bottom bracket is a truvativ SL. im guessing its ****?

im thinking bout getting a race face evolve FR BB and putting it on my bike. would that work with
the truvativ cranks. they are both ISIS splined so im guessing they will thanx

I sounds like it wasn't properly installed if it's only four weeks old. I'd take it back to the LBS
you bought it from to have it looked at. It could be several things from the BB, cranks or chainring
bolts. You could remove everything and reinstall the BB using plumbers teflon tape, then grease the
spindles and reinstall the cranks. All to Truvativs recommended torque settings. Check the chainring
bolts as well, take each out and grease the threads and tighten them back up. Don't ride it until
this is done if it is a loose crank the splines will be damaged and it will be time for a new set.

I had a creaking BB, didn't take it out. Went cycling in extreme (I.e. UK) muddy conditions and it
collapsed, had to cycle home with an inch of play in the pedals. Sh*gged my knee for a good 48 hours
too... doh.

But, it is usually the seatpost... ;o)

I'm with Michael on this one. It's easy to wrongly install a bottom bracket. Probably not the fault
of the part. "Michael Dart" <[email protected]> wrote in message

Shock pivots (for me, this is 2nd to the seatpost). Swing-arm pivot. Pedals.

I've NEVER had it actually be the BB :)
