Creaks can destroy a person or their relationship with a bike. Not bottom bracket related but I know someone that once filled their Commencal frame with expandifoam in an effort to prevent cable rattle, shame they forgot to thread the rear brake hose through an outer hose first...... that stuff sticks.
