Hi guys, please help me with this one!
I bought a new unbuilt 2004 S-Works Enduro from eBay a while ago. Just received it on Friday. When holding the frame I noticed a clicking sound. After investigating it, it seems that the sound comes from flipflop link pivots as there would be play in pivots/bearings already. When I pull from seatstays backwards, it seems like the link moves a bit and that's when it makes that sound.
This seems really weird because it is a brand new frame. I think I should try to tighten the pivot bolts and if that doesn't help or they can't be tightened, what should I do ? Keep my 2002 Enduro and sell the S-works frame or change the bearings on the S-works frame or what ? Have you guys encountered similar problems ? I've heard that the upper shock bearing goes out very fast on 2004 models but I've never heard of play in pivots of a new frame.
