I seem to have got rid of that annoying creak!
No, not one of my bike riding mates, but a creaky crack that sounded only when going over hard rooty tracks, parts of Glentress for instance. I finally changed the bearings on the main pivot point of my bikes rear suspension, not without some difficulty I might add, as well as doing the headset which actually seemed OK. A 14 miler last night and a 15 miler tonight with as much hard rooty stuff as I could find and not a creak (from the bike) but a few from me. Hopefully that's it fixed, though I probably broke every rule in the mountain bike repair book with some of my methods!
