    Ignition frame

    Just before Ibex closed I got a replacement Ignition frame. My old frame I bought in 2006 had cracked and James sent me a new frame almost immediately. I was pleased and surprised by how quickly it came. The one I received was a different style from my prior frame. Anyway James said he would send me new bushings for the shock and he didn't and now they can't be reached. Can someone give me the the correct bushing overall width for the top and bottom of the shock. Just measure the overall width and I'll figure out the bushing width required.

    Another problem the frame has is that the rocker assembly rubs the seat tube on one side. Possibly this frame is warped but the overall clearances for this rocker would be very small even if it's centered. Has anyone else had this rubbing problem with the latest Ignition frame?

    You're checking it without the shock mounted correct?

    Is it maybe just a loose pivot bolt so the head of the bolt is hitting?

    Yes I checked it with the shock out and it stll rubs. The main pivots were tight. I slightly loosened both sides and it still rubs. I thought of putting a small spacer washer under the main pivot to slightly move it out.

    Took me awhile to get back to this. Attached is a picture of the side to side clearances. I'm guessing the rear triangle is just warped.

    I'm wondering if the seat tube is twisted

    That could be checked by seeing if the seatpost slides all the way down.

    If you let the air out of the shock does the whole rear end compress freely?

    Have you got the correct spacer/washer between the rocker and frame? You could add a shim there to create clearance.
