I have a new Haro Flightline Comp and have developed a grinding feeling while pedaling, along with a popping sound that seems to increase as force on the pedals are increased. Any ideas?
If it makes a difference, the bike has been taken back to the shop 2 times for problems with the bottom bracket. The first time they tightened it, the second time they replaced it. The bottom bracket is not loose this time as it has been in the past, could the problem be with it again? Rear hub?
Also, my front fork has been leaking a little oil from the right side essentially since I bought the bike...is this normal? It seems to be getting worse.
One other problem...the quick release on the front wheel no longer stops when you tighten it...the handle will now extend into the front disk if pushed when tightening...I'll assume it's broke, am I correct?
I hope it doesn't sound like the bike has been abused...it has not...only off the road 3 times on beginner trails, no jumping over 5-6", always stored inside, I haven't even got it muddy yet...
Thanks for the help!
