And the creaking starts. Anyone really know if you can silence Press fit BB. It’s only been 3 weeks. When I got the the bike I installed upgraded cranks that I already owned. I followed all advisewith compound etc, still creaking now. 2nd bike in a row that creaks. It’s funny , I look forward to working on my sons threaded BB and wonder why the change from such a simply setup. Other than that ,love the bike. Took awhile to set up suspension but now climbs and descents amazing.

The change from threaded bb's to press-fit made it easier for the factories to manufacture, making it a faster and lower cost product, resulting in the case with YT, cheaper bikes.
Unfortunately they are pretty unreliable for the end user and I personally go through one every 4 months. Wet, slop doesn't help.

Are you 100% it’s the BB? Many times I have thought my BB was creaking only to discover it’s actually my crank cinch bolt or a dirty seat tube. It’s pretty common but everyone seems to jump immediately to BB when they hear a creak.

Thats true, jeffsys also have a tendency to develop a creaky suspension main pivot among other things creak, shock bushings as well
So better take your time checking stuff

. It may be something other than BB and will start investigating. I let everyone know if I figure it out.

Thanks mate! Looks awesome!

I've just received my Invisiframe which I ordered but I got the Gloss... I think I might see if I can return it and swap it for the Matte.

Very much appreciate the insight buddy!

Working man's "SLXTR" swapped the SLX bushing pulleys with XTR, what a huge difference a couple bucks makes! XTR chain and new E13 TRS+ aluminum cogs (33-39-46) going on this evening. It's been snowing on the central Front Range so haven't really been able to ride the last few days but just pedaling in the driveway and feeling the difference between bushings and bearings is incredible.
