Hey everyone. So I have the dreaded BB creak, and it's exceptional! I've gotten a solid season out if the stock BB so it's time for a new one.

Was hoping for some help getting information regarding the dimensions of the BB that's already in there and recommendations on what to replace it with.

My YT is a 2018 AL comp.

Any help is very appreciated!

I have the same bike and issue and am online looking to buy replacement So far I have found its a BB92. And Im feeling like i have to assume its the 41mm Shell ID. I have the crank out but need to buy puller to get the cups out before I could measure shell ID.

Have you had any luck? any advice?

I have a 2016 Capra AL with the same issue. There is a company called Wheel Manufacturing who make a bracket that threads together. I was thinking of trying it out. Has anyone tried this yet?

often turns out to be the crank, grease the spindle real well and it will quite likely go away.

Tried the grease, unfortunately did not help. If anything it made it a little louder. Everything is torqued to spec.

Dealing with some creaking currently and found three (tripeak, wheels, ninja) that thread together. I grabbed the tripeak one from amazon for $50, but haven't had a chance to install yet as it just arrived yesterday.
