i bet it's not the cranks, i bet it's the spokes. chances are, the spokes are loose.

it would sound like the crank, because you'd get the creak with each power stroke

i don't know if this is recommended, but what i do in this situation, is turn every spoke 1/4 turn tighter. (still creaking, try an 1/8 turn, and so on) it solves it, but may do something bad to the tension (although I've never noticed anything bad)

Check for very loose spokes first, of course.
