I have a 2006 Motolite with a SRAM X-9 build..
I try to do basic repairs myself and need advice on three things:
1.) The horst link on the drivetrain side is loose enough so that the chain stay is moving slightly (makes a creaky noise as you pedal up a hill). I went to tighten this while on the trail and noticed that the back "bolt" isn't really a traditional bolt, it is completley round and the 4mm hex drive threads into it... It is not something that I am able to tighten unless there is a specialty tool?
2.) Front Juicy 7 break... I can completely pull the lever to the handlebar with almost zero breaking. I tried to adjust the top red pad-adjustment to no avail. The pads seemt to be in good shape. Should I buy a bleed kit and try to bleed them? any other ideas?
3.) Chain suck... OK, so I shouldn't be going into granny that often anyway; however, when I do (or rather try to) The chain jumps over the last cog and I have to take off my back wheel to get it unstuck... Is it time for a new chain or is there something else I could try (taking out links?)
Any advice is apprecaited.
