    DOH! My RDO is missing a bolt!

    Whilst doing some apparently overdue linkage bolt checking, I discovered one of the lower linkage flat aluminum head bolts was MIA, and with plenty of dirt in the hole from which it came. Fortunately everything is still lining up well, but the upper rocker had gotten a bit loose as a result of this missing bolt. RDO V1.0 FWIW

    I see on the Niner site that for a mere $80 I can get a complete set of shiny new bolts in a variety of colors, but how about a single unit??

    Suggestions?

    Same thing happened to me this year with my Jet 9 RDO. Niner dealer replaced it and charged me just for one bolt. However after replacing I had a lot of creaking and it turned out the bearings were shot. Not sure if it was ultimately related to the missing bolt or not, but replaced them all as well. Niner encyclopedia now says to tighten the bolts to 10nm instead of 6.

    Unfortunately I'm without the bike again as I got a crack in rear triangle along chain stay. Waiting to hear back from the dealer regarding warranty claim.

    Interesting. I happen to fine a red bolt on the trail last weekend while riding the Brown county trails! Kept it for my Niner! Yours?

    Nope, not mine. Mine is laying on the ground somewhere at Santos, Florida...
