    What issues do you refer?

    But just so you know, the rear sections on all Rize and RZ models are all the same.

    I must be lucky; I have 4000-5000 kms on my Rize Carbon and all I've had to replace is the lower shock bushing.

    Having recently completely stripped down my Rize Carbon (for cleaning and easy maintenance purposes) after around 2500 miles of hard-trail riding in mostly wet, muddy and rough conditions. I found only 1 bearing to be a bit rough due to some water ingress corrosion and could do with being replaced. The other 7 were still as smooth as silk.

    sealed cartridge bearings are not totally "sealed", especially when water is introduced to them, they need a spray of penetrating lubricant from time to time to keep water from causing corrosion in there, especially if the bike has gotten wet........ that is my method of keeping cartridge bearings lasting and lasting.......
