I recently bought a set of Easton EA90 SLX wheels and i love them but the front wheel is very creaky when i pedal hard. Is there anything i can do to stop it?

    have you checked the bearing preload adjustment screw on the side of the hub? Check the rear one for directional arrows to get an idea what way to loosen or tighten.

    Could be loose spoke, heavy rider and a number of other factors. I would check the bearing preload adjustment first..

    The easton site has some really good flash vids of maintenance etc but the site seems to be down right now :cry:

    Thanks Doobz but i think i've cracked it.

    Someone advised me to grease the front drop outs which has stopped the problem. :D
