I had a "clicking" noise that appears to have been coming from the brake line cable stop on the chain stay that came loose.The screw had no lube and the whole piece was moving every time they suspension cycled. So far my adjustment seems to have solved the issue. Maybe that's your culprit too? I spoke with Chris King and they will have a DUB bb in a month or so. That should solve your rusting issue if that's the case. Usually with threaded Bottom brackets I wrap teflon tape opposite the tread pattern and then grease seems to help a lot for a noisy bb.

I'd probably Not do that and instead try and figure out a way to help it dry out in there when you're not riding. It's so difficult to access that spot to change out the foam without removing the BB...would suck if the foam absorbed water like a sponge and accelerated the corrosion.

Did you coat everything is a ton of grease when you did the install. I always to that myself...but I also don't ride a ton.. like once a week maybe twice at most...

I have begun to overcoat the Bb with grease now due to this issue. It hasnt been an issue since but we shall see.

Fair point on the foam. Better to work on some kind of drainage system/ etc. Making sure im careful around joints/bewarings/pivots when washing.

Did you replace the bearings because of noise?

That sounds like a cool thing. AAND I actually know a place with some awesome inspection gizmos like that...


All the bearings have been replaced, twice. Once by me. And again by the dealer because they didn't know I already did that..Even thought the loctite 680 bearing mount I used shoulda been a giveaway.

Ferd what about borrowing fiberoptic camera and look around your frame to find the culprit? Also, examine bearings if they are the reason for those sounds.

How would the CK BB prevent rust versus any other threaded BB? No sracasm, legit question. Im pretty low on Bb related knowledge.

I had a strange knocking noise that was coming from some linkage point or the BB. I replaced the BB and it has since gone away. The knocking was synchnonized to each pedal stroke and i could actually feel the "noise"/issue in my feet (thru my pedals and shoes). Apparently my BB had rusted bearings from water getting into the frame.
I have this too on my rallon, exactly as you describe it, but I've only ridden it four times... tightened all the linkage bolts too and the knocking hasn't gone away. I'll take the cranks off and check the bb to see if that's the cause

Remove and regrease the BB.. Check for rust/water in the tubes. Make sure everything is torqued correctly and it should go away.

Chris King Botton Bracket is serviceable plus you can get ceramic bearings that wouldn’t rust. Even their stainless bears are way more durable than OEM bottom brackets.
