    Lugged Steel Masi creaking

    Howdy Folks,

    So what should I be looking for if my lugged steel Masi GC (2011) is creaking around the bottom bracket area, but the bottom bracket is brand new?

    I can be off the bike, hold the brake, and push the chain stay and hear an audible crack or creak. I can do this from either side.

    Is the frame SOL?
    Thanks
    Tyler

    Lube the rear skewer and axle where it contacts the frame.

    I love you Tihsepa!!!! Lubed the rear skewer and the creaking/cracking is GONE completely.

    What would I do without the internet?

    Awesome.

    I grease everything that is metal on metal. Never had a problem.

    Glad its fixed.
