    Aluminium wearing away on my IH DH Team

    I have a new SGS, after my second ride I have noticed that the bolt the protrudes from the drive side (by the lower pivot and points out towards the top of the inside of the chain device, dont ask me what its purpose is) is rubbing on the swingarm as it compresses, it has worn away the paint and some frame material.

    What is this bolt for? how do I stop it?

    That is a mount for certain types of chainguides and etype FD's (if you want to ghetto one on there). There shouldn't be any interference w/ the nub and the chainstay. Take out the shock and check for any interference. If there is you can remove the nub w/ a hacksaw. It's probably caused by rocks and grit getting between there and the CS and scratching under bottomout.
