Domane HP Iso Speed noise

I will readily admit as far as creaks and rattles etc I can become obsessive. I have had my Domane 2021 HP for a few weeks now and have put about 90 miles on it. The last two rides my Iso Speed I believe is making a creaking noise when I pedal. I came home yesterday and adjusted it to the softest setting and sprayed some lubricant on the seat post in case that was the cause. I can actually duplicate it by putting pressure on my seat and seat post and I can hear the noise on the bottom part of the Iso Speed that is on the bottom part of the top tube. It is kinda driving me nuts. I thought I would reach out to all of you before running it back over to my LBS. Btw it didn't do it when I first rode it. Thanks everyone

So I have bee doing a little of my own diagnosis and problem solving before I take the bike to the LBS. I wanted to wait until my first service to take the bike in as I need to have them check the rear derailleur also. So the noise appears to be most pronounced with the iso speed on the softest setting. Hence more flex and a smoother ride. I put the adjustment to a firmer setting and the noise basically went away. Makes sense actually. Anyhow loving the bike and certainly riding on some very windy days that I would normally not go out. My 13 year old grandson rode it yesterday for a bit and said it was all of the fun of biking without any of the negatives! Even though he thinks I might be cheating a bit with it. Lol!

I ride an Allant 9.9 from Trek and love it. My experience with them has been that they are very responsive to any problems that might arise with my bike, which aligns with what I have heard from others. I also have a good bike workshop with a stand and lots of tools and enjoy working on my bike.

I find it hard to resist working on things on the bike that might be warranty issues but try to exercise restraint. I urge you to do the same. We paid a premium price for a premium brand that comes with a good warranty that has people trained and ready to help.

Best to leave potential warranty issues for them to resolve.
