comment “Creaking” noise from headtube/handlebar
Put your head close to the head tube and try to recreate it. You may be able to locate the sound more precisely. I thought my stem/head tube was causing a noise, but when I listened closely discovered it was the QR skewer/fork interface. When riding these sound the same.

comment Shimano Ultegra vs Shimano Sora
I agree that 105 may be a good compromise, but this answer could be improved if you can describe the comparison to Sora (which presumably would be significant).

Thanks the CWP-7 did the job nicely on what turned out to be square-tapered cranks.

Uh, obviously the screw thread is the same as the cap (standard kind of righty-tighty, lefty-loosey).
