Hello again, everyone! Thanks for coming here :D

So I have this creaking sound from my cranks/bottom bracket. What do I do in order to fix it? About every 180 degrees I pedal forwards and backwards, there is a creak. Could my cranks just be too tight/lose? Also, I am very sure it's the cranks because I swapped pedals just to make sure it wasn't them creating the creak.

Thanks guys!

I'd say you need to take off you cranks and regrease your bb

Exactly what BradBMXs said, take them apart and re-grease. Worked perfect for me.
