Hey everyone...new to the forum...and semi new to gravel riding.
I got a great deal on a 2015 Specialized Diverge Expert a few weeks back after being on the lookout for a gravel bike for like 3 years now.
I live at 11,000 feet in Colorado and wanted to go light etc with the bike but never had the money.
Bike was a "blem" model that my local shop got me. Honestly it is basically brand new. Not sure why it was labelled a blem...could have just been tested and then they could not sell it "new".
Anyway. I have developed some noise coming out of the bottom bracket now after about 100 miles of riding. I am pushing the bike hard and treat it more like a MTB than a road bike. Gravel riding where I am is not the same as elsewhere in the country.
What are some options for BB upgrades or something that will be more robust and not start creeking on me every 50 miles after a re-lube? Has the BB30.
Thanks! Hope to contribute here more.
