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.
Happy Life Day
