    noticable play in my 2010 650B suspension, problem?

    There is noticable vertical play in my rear suspension when I grab the back wheel and move up and down. side to side seems to be okay. Is this a problem? I had the bearings and hardware replaced once already due to a broken pivot bolt. I can't tell if the play is at the upper pivot points or the shock mount. Anyone else have this problem?

    Here is the message I sent to Steveeldr

    It sound like you have some play in your seat stay pivot. Here is a link to the pdf of the suspension http://www.jamisbikes.com/usa/tech/i..._techsheet.pdf If you add an additional spacer number 12 Spacer 12x6xT1.5, Stainless. This should eliminate the play you are feeling in the shock

    Sorry it took me so long to post, I'm gladBycyclePHD responded. I put an extra spacer on the upper pivot on the non-drive side. The directions didn't specify which side to put the extra spacer, at first I tried to put 2 (1 on each side) but they would not fit. I've been out for several rides since and still no play.
