Does the grinding occur (can you feel it) when you turn the cranks by hand? If yes then it is a BB problem. If not then it could be a chain issue that seems like it's coming from the BB. Beyond that it is a matter of getting the cups firmly in the frame and all threads well-greased. If these are press-fit cups then maybe they need to be reinstalled with something like LockTite.Greetings all,
Any Bianchi Infinito CV owners with bottom bracket creaking, squeaking ad grinding noises? Has anyone tried using Praxis conversion kit rather than BB cups (Campy for 2012-2014 Record 11 see).
It's a 2015 and I built the bike myself but I'm not sure what you mean by lip/ledge. In any case, nothing interfered with the Praxis installation.What year is you Infinito CV? Do you know if your frame BB shell has a lip/ledge? I am assuming that if it did, it has not interfered with the Praxis conversion kit.
I had this happen to me before. And I had some mud on my face when we found out that most of the noise came from loose bolts on my shoes. It was not easy to own up to the mistake. Lucky for me the LBS owner is a very nice guy and a friend. It is still a running joke.
Thanks! I will try replacing the cleats which are overdue by many miles. I'm using Speedplay which I've heard has the creaking issue. Hopefully this does the trick.
