    M6 Frame out of alignment

    Just wondering if anyone else is having the same problems with their M6's.

    The rear shock mount skewed off to the right hand side resulting in the shock mount scraping against the seat tube. I have checked the bearings and pivots and all seems to be fine. I have also tried flexing the frame by rocking the rear wheel and whilst the frame moves a little, it doesn't look like it is bad enough to hit the frame.

    I have taken the bike back to the dealer, where they replaced the pivots, but this didn't help. They have now ordered a rear triangle to see if this fixes the problem.

    Anyone else see this?

    Any suggestions?

    Easiest way to see if it is the rear triangle is to pull the rear triangle. If the shock yoke is still off to the right then you have a front triangle issue which is also the most likely one. Has to be curing issue with your specific frame unless you somehow twisted the linkages but you said all of those we're replaced already. How old is the frame and has it been like this since new?

    I will give that a try.

    I picked the bike up in January, and whilst I can't specifically remember, I don't think it was like this when it was new. Well not as bad so as to rub against the down tube.

    Have you got that sorted out..?

    My frame also is little off in there. Not that much, but the rear shock mount is definately not in the middle of the seat tube.
