My 3 yr old bike has developed a creak noise which sound like it's coming from the bottom bracket area. It appears to only do this as I approach the 6 oclock position i.e. downstroke. It's very repeatable and sounds very similar to creaking floorboards.
Things I have checked/noticed
1) usual rocking the cranks side to side - feels stiff even I give it a good tug. 2) I feel very noticeable play when grabbing the right crank arm then moving the right pedal backwards and forwards.
So what's wrong with it? time for new pedals?
