I'm tearing down my GFs '07 Devinci Moonracer 3 and doing the pivots while I'm at it as they have never been maintained. I dissassembled the main pivot and was surprised to notice that it runs on bushings instead of bearings.
Given that her bike always creaks and that Devinci's are supposedly known for this "feature", I was wondering if anybody had ever replaced the bushings of the main pivot with appropriate bearings (and possibly other pivots that I'll dissassemble later.) Any reason why this shouldn't be done? Do you think it would work?
While we're at it, my guess is that they use bushings to help with rear end flex. How noticable would this be if I swapped for bearings? My GF is not heavy, I doubt she would notice... Also, how much smoother would the suspension be with bearings instead of bushings?
