    If you have the tools then personally i'd strip and rebuild the crankset / bottom brackets. Use grease on all threads including the bottom bracket into the frame, crankset axle etc. Also worth removing the chainring bolts and greasing those up and refitting too.

    Know it might seem funny, but remove handlebar stem bolts - the ones which hold the bars on, clean the threads, grease them and replace properly torqued up. Have had this on several occasions - it sounnds like bb - it creaks when you pull on the bars (you don't realise how much you do pull on the bars when pedalling!) :D
