    '08 Mongoose Canaan Comp creaking pivots
    I bought a new '08 Mongoose Canaan Comp about a year ago.
    Have been enjoying it, and it does what I need it to!
    The pivots are starting to creak. Is there any maintenance I need to do?
    Or just replace them, or??
    Any help?

    Check that out. It gives decent information about maintenance. Check you bolts are tight. you might need to replace the bearings in the pivot behind the BB.

    Thanks for the link.
    That's perfect.
    I took the main pivots out and greased them up as specified. That helped a ton. Still need to get to the other ones as there's still a little creaking, but 95% better already!

    Good job on fixing the problem. This is way off topic but was wondering if you guys know how much the frame weighs?

    Sorry, I don't.
    Tried to find it for a few minutes online with no luck.

    I weighed mine when I had it apart before but I dont remember the exact weight. I think it was just over 6 lbs. I think that was including a manitou X3 rear shock.
