    Squeeky rear suspension

    This is probably something easy to fix: My rear suspension squeeks.

    Have you had this before and can tellme what the most likely cause is? Hoping you can save me some time here.

    Bike is pretty new. Just a few rides.

    Thanks

    Squeaky suspension on the Mojo seems to be a rare thing.
    I would check:
    -brake cables
    -shift cables
    -seat and seat tube
    -I've had a really dry shock before that squeaked. It can be opened up and lubed easily. Check the Fox site for service videos.
    -make sure all the suspension bolts are tight
    -have you gotten the bike fairly wet? Could be something just needs some lube somewhere.
    Those who know, ride a Mojo AND a Mojo HD.

    While your squeak may sound like the suspension, it probably isn't. Carbon tubes transmit noises like that really well, making it tricky to tell where they're actually from.

    Do you have a metal ferrule in your rear top-tube RD cablestop? This is the most notorious squeaker. Easily fixed by replacing with a plastic ferrule. A bit of dirt on this one can also lead to squeaks, but again, not so much with plastic ferrules.

    try spraying a little lube on your rear quick release skewer. My mojo was squeaking badly in Moab, and Marshall at Uranium Bikes checked the freewheel, all pivots, cables,etc. and it turned out to be the quick release.

    I had squeaky rear suspension on my Mojo Sl, which I did not cure until I fitted a Lopes Link.
    it turns out 9judging by the wear on the anodising) that there must have been dirt + grit between the frame and the links.

    There were zero marks on the frame, but enough to wear the ano off the inside of the links

    Update: mtb143 is definitely right. I can reproduce the squeaking by moving the rear derailleur cable.

    But my rear shock needed a bit love, too. So I am glad I checked that and all the suspension links.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Just as I hoped - you did save me some time trying oy locate the issue.

    Glad to hear! Also happy to hear you got a Mojo! You did a little test ride on mine in the middle of Porcupine last fall.

    How are you liking it?

    Still: Thanks for letting me take a spin on your bike that day. I do appreciate the trust, the confidence and the generousity. I don't meet that many folks that invite me to send their bike over a drop.

    And yes - it was all it took to sell me on a Mojo. Your bike is dialed!
