So me and a buddy have one month old slayer 2020 C50's. It sounds like the csu is creaking and cracking, but shop thinks the csu is fine. Cleaned and regreased the headset. Tried a different wheel. Removed brake. All no no avail

Any ideas ?

I just bought my first modern mountain bike, 2019 Altitude A50. Mine creaks too, I have no idea if this is normal. It seems to ride fine, just makes a little noise at times. I’ll be interested in seeing what others say.

Could be a number of things. Stem too tight, stem bolts need grease. Have you tried pulling out the seat post and give it a wipe down? Sound travels in bike frames, especially carbon and it can be hard to pinpoint. Could also be the BB or a loose crank bolt. I've had all of those and it always sounded like it was coming from the front somewhere.

Drip a little penetrant everywhere you can where it wont contaminate.
