I usually just lube the chain and put sram butter on all seals.

After a particularly muddy ride the other day I hosed the bike off like I usually do, but now I have a nasty creaking. It's most noticeable when applying pressure to the pedals and sounds like it's coming from the BB, but I'll have to do some digging to figure out what the issue is.

I just developed that too..

What cranks do you guys have? If raceface with cinch mount, try taking off the chainring and applying grease to the interface where it mounts the the crank arm and then install the lockring to proper torque.

They are the RF Aeffect. Yes I think it is the cinch mount. What I cant figure out is how it comes apart.

The crank comes off with a regular allen wrench, the chainring needs to be removed by a special tool. I use this one: http://www.jensonusa.com/JensonUSA-26BB-Bottom-Bracket-Tool

Make sure you eat your wheaties beforehand... it takes a significant amount of force.

Happened to my old xc bike. The clicking (for me was every pedal rotation under power) was because I had bent my cranks... But could be as simple a fix as a new bb

Ha thanks man. The frame is just how I received it from the previous owner. I think the yellow sets it off quite well, but maybe we're all a bit biased when it comes to our own bikes!

I freaking love the red/black/silver combo though, so rad.

After first ride & wash with 2017 jeffsy Razz

Feels pretty solid one after 6 years old Radon XC bike.
Changed tyres for Rekon 2.6" and suprisingly width of those is the same than 2,4" HR II. Guess the air volume of the tyres raised a bit. Probably this have something to do with rim size, which unfurtunate aren´t 30mm...
