It could be the BB, a dirty seatpost/seat tube interface, also check the bushings of the shock and/or froglink (I don't know what bushings you did check), and so on...
And don't forget to clean before regreasing...fokof said:Take everything off , grease BB cups in and out , the chainring bolts in and out, pedals.
Nah, not yet, was away for vacations for last weekend and will be the upcoming also...keetowah said:Any updates reset?
Well, if it's loose it could actually break under load, at the very least it would put undue wear and tear on it for sure so I wouldn't ride it. It probably needs some locktite, it could be toast, or it maybe just a little worn, hard to tell without looking at it. It only takes an allen wrench to take it apart, no special tools needed. Go to the hardware store buy some locktite #242 and use that when you put it back together. I replaced my whole rear pivot after 6months, but I abused it racing. The link to the c'dale site I posted shows the "exploded" view of the pivot, it looks intimidating but really it's no big deal.Reset said:Nah, not yet, was away for vacations for last weekend and will be the upcoming also...
Had no time to work on the bike yet because I need to buy a few tools...(really just starting bike mechs)
But when I pull on the rear side arm ( the arm from the fox float to the wheel), it seems loose. I mean the frogrear seems loose so, like you said, I'm really thinking it might be the rear pivots.
You talked about cleaning and greasing...how often do you have to change thoses? If it's loose, does it need to be changed?
Last question, is there a problem to keep riding the bike for short rides in this condition (until I manage to find time to fix it :madman: ) or I might damage something.
Thanks a bunch
ps. keetowah, that was nice to get back to me:thumbsup:
