I just bought a new (2012) bike, and as the title says, the fork squeaks like crazy. I was wondering if this is normal during break in, or if I should take it back to the shop and have them look at it.
When you say squeek, do you mean when it's compressing? I can clearly hear the spring in mine when riding it, kind of a squishing sound? Not sure if that helps. I'm still trying to get mine setup for sag (wrote a post last week, but didn't get any answers). I plan to ride mine for a few months until I can put a Manitou on my bike.
Sorry for late reply. Yeah, when I compress the fork it makes a somewhat high pitched noise, kind of like a dog toy but quieter (sorry for weird comparison but that's what it sounds like). I took it to the shop and they said it was normal. I don't trust them on it though, because he has lied about stuff in the past...
