    Bad pivots on release 1

    Hey anyone having issues with their release? Mine is creaking from the pivots and maybe the crank? Bike shop told me bad pivot bearings, but the bike is only 4 month old. Any thoughts, I live in Florida so no crazy jumps or nothing too extreme.

    Suggest reading through the Release thread.

    Release: Any owners yet?

    Servicing the pivots with good grease should be the first step. Diamondback has a video for that.

    There is this one too:

    I have a 1 and my pivots have mostly been ok. I did have an issue with one bad pivot axle (see the thread noted above), but that was handled by DB. The pivots creak a little after a while, but all I need to do is snug them up a bit and they are good for a month or two (riding 1-2 a week)
