    Rize rear triangle?

    Ok I just bought a rize that should be here on Thursday. It's a 2009 rize 4. I've been researching and I've seen some problems with the bearings in the seat and chain stay from the bolts loosening up. What should I check for when it gets here? What's the fix? Should I pull it apart and put blue lock tight on every thing? Does anyone know where I can get the torque specs from? Thanks for any help or advise.

    See if this helps you out. I have an 09 Rize 3 and have not had any issues.

    Follow the directions and you will be fine. Mine is still going strong since early 09 with no issues.

    check the torque on each bolt, it should be not less than 5nm. No need to disassemble it now.
