I've just bought a Trek 6300 and I'm getting a strange creaking coming from the crank/bottom bracket when I'm stand pedalling. It only happens when I'm stand pedalling, and only what appears to be on my right hand side. It's like a triple click on each downward motion on the right pedal. But again, only when stand pedaling?
I didn't buy the bike brand new from a shop, I bought it off of one a friend of a friend who used it for a charity ride in January and hasn't used it since, hence he sold it. I just find it odd that the noise only happens on the right hand side. Could it be that the chain is catching the front derailer? I'm still relatively new to mountain bikes.
