    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.
