I've been wondering for some time what the creaking noise coming from the linkage on my 2003 Fuel 98 was. Looked a couple times, cleaned it out and couldn't find anything. Then today I noticed the whole thing was moving up and down a bit at the pivot on the seat tube. Turns out the the holes on the linkage triangle have gotten (more than) a little worn out.

Anyone have any clue if I can get a replacement for this anymore? I'll drop into my LBS tomorrow, but, you know, I'm impatient and would like to know, like, NOW!
