Hi, so when it comes to my bike I’m a bit obsessed about rattles and knocks on my bike I want to be able to pick it up drop it and it be dead. No rattle. I’ve literally just had a custom bike built. I have pretty much everything federal I love it it’s been mint, so far... I ride it everyday without fail and the cranks have started to make creaking and cracking noises. It can’t be the bottom bracket I’ve literally just put a brand new one in. I have been on bmx track in my local town making some grit has gotten in and that’s whats making the grinding type noise. My bars are also making like a clunking noise there not moving but like there’s a weird clunk noise. I have moved the position of my bars a few to many times maybe There not gripping properly ? Or is it my headset ?? Whatever it is it’s doing my head in because I’m OCD about noises on my bike.
Thanks in advance

Strip your cranks/bb, and headset, apply grease in the relevant places. Reassemble, and tighten everything.

Sounds like your bike has mustard custard; you can sometimes find the same gunk on your lady's bum. Normally you lick if off, but for a bike you should get a bristle brush to scrap it off and then wipe it with a dry cloth, then re-lube.

I’d trust this guy. Just look at his name!

If you want a buzz gone...look no further.
