Hopefully my new mechanic is wrong. I'll try to describe as best I can and keep my fingers crossed for a solution that doesn't involve a new frame.
For reference, I started riding about 4 years ago on an older cross bike I got at a garage sale. Once I knew I was going to enjoy it for a good long time, I bought a new road bike that fit my budget. After a short time, I decided to lower the stem a little for a better fit. Unfortunately, due to my inexperience, I just took a spacer out instead of rearranging them. Basically I rode a couple weeks with an exceptionally loose headset until I realized the spacer needed to go back in.
Early this year, I started to notice a creaking sound from the front end area. After I ruled out everything I could grease or lube myself, I took it in to have it looked at. He replaced some bearings in the headset as well as tried swapping out the fork. Neither of those solved the noise. His final diagnosis after I told him about the spacer fiasco was that I likely "stretched" the base of the headtube just the slightest bit which is allowing for a minute amount of wiggle from the headset causing the creaking. From the little bit of research I've done, this seems plausible.
My question is are there any options besides a new frame? It doesn't seem to be a safety issue, but sure is an annoying sound to hear every time I hit a rough patch of road.

+Scott Collins He didn't specify, but if he has an integrated headset, the cups are the headtube.

Even if he had traditional cups, it's quite possible the headtube can be stretched. Especially if he has steel cups in an aluminum frame; steel is about 4x as strong as aluminum. I've seen that one a couple of times at the shop, as well.

I'm selling these as a means to meet my $2500 goal for cancer research this summer. They are $10/pack and 100% of the proceeds goes directly to the researchers at the James Center at Ohio State via Pelotonia. Message me if interested.

Want it. Really, really want it.
 
What you really want for Christmas: A video arcade cabinet with a beer tap!

The Arkeg Drink n Game combines video arcade game play with beer on tap. From the front it looks like a pretty standard two-player arcade cabinet. But on the left side, you'll find a beer tap. Inside is a powerful computer in one compartment and a refrigerated beer dispensing system in another. 

The console comes with 69 games installed, including Asteroids, Battlezone, Centipede, Missile Command, Paperboy — and even the original video game, Pong! 

The system is PC based, so you can add more games from the Internet or get them on disc. The system can play up to 15,000 games, according to the company.

Thanks, Office Depot, for the examples on how to use my new desk calendar. I was going to try to feed and water it until it could talk to me. I guess that's not what I'm supposed to do.
