    Bonking ... not feelin' well New Built- Supercaliber 29 FS- MAIN PIVOT Play- STRANGE ??

    Hi there all,

    This will be my new baby when built. Will post soon some pictures.

    I got frame- 2 pieces (main, swingarm) and shock separately.
    When putting it together, there seems to be a big gap (play)- 2 mm (millimeters) when swingarm installed on the main frame with the Thru Axle.
    CAN ANY OF YOU GUYS WHO KNOW THIS FRAME ADVISE IF THIS IS CORRECT.
    MANY THANKS !!
    More details: Looks like the thru axle only hold the bearing to the main frame and then the swingarm still slides freely on the thru axle. Then there are 2 bolts which tighten the swingarm to the bearing- which will prevent from sliding. BUT IS THIS SUFFICIENT- IS THIS DESIGN GOING TO LAST- LOOKS VERY LIGHTWEIGHT AND AND IMPERFECT TO ME.

    Many thanks for any insigth.

    P.

    Pictures would help. It sounds like a bushing is missing.
