BMX Bottom Bracket Creaking and Clicking
#1
Hi, I received my brand new BMX last week, and already on the next day after I assembled everything I noticed an annoying creaking noise and felt some kind of clicking of the cranks under load, for example if I ride uphill. I disassembled the whole bottom bracket, cleaned everything (althout everything was clean and greased already) and regreased it. Nothing changed. What should I do? Is this normal for a new bike and will the clicking just disapper after some more rides? It's an american bb and a cheap old school BMX.

Not normal. If it is new take it back.
There are two kinds of people in the world, "Those who help themselves to people, and those who help people!"

Take it back and do not tell them you worked on it. Try another in the store.
Never Give Up!!!
