I've got a V1.5 Covert bought back in 2008. While putting it up today, I felt the slightest amount of play as I unloaded the rear. Lightly lifting the rear reveals a slight popping feel that's detectable throughout the bike. You can even feel it on the handlebars.
After spending about an hour trying to chase it down, I'm fairly certain it's the forward most shock mount. Perhaps the bushing became rounded out or something? I'm not that familiar with suspension linkage.
First up, has anyone else come across this? If so, how'd you fix it? I was planning on replacing the bearings and hardware this winter, but maybe I should fast forward those plans. Do you think new hardware could take care of the issue? Student budget, so I don't want to just start throwing new stuff on there. Also, should I park it until it's all sorted?
