its been a good bike! i've owned my for 5 years (its 2009) and ridden it hard. just within the last 4-5 months i've gotten the play/looseness in the linkage, its in the pivot where the bushing is wearing a ring into the rear triangle. not bad as i'm thinking of getting a new bike. to get rid of the play, i cut off the end of a bushing and wedged in there before i attached back together. this initially tightened it up somewhat, but now its more loose again.

anyone know if possible to buy a rear triangle for this bike, any around?

ps. my rune is 33 pounds on the nose (coil shock). i'm looking at one of the new light rippers, slack, AM bike (nomad, reign, slash, etc)
