    Creaky fuel victims

    Well, i feared this would happen but my fuel is now creaking at the pivots and seems like im not the only one. I'm pretty sure its the pivot/rocker link cuz when try to wiggle the rear triangle it creaks alot. Would most say its just simply loose pivot bolts, got my fingers crossed that it is that and not more serious bushing issues?

    Mine Creaked

    Mine started to creak..... so I took off the seat post, cleaned it, applied grease to the seatpost, and re-installed it. No more creak for me.... just thought that I would mention it.

    Yeah, i checked it all out without the seat post in the frame. And I have a carbon fuel with a carbon seatpost so lube is out of the question. Well, it turns out the pivot bolts were loose. One of the pivots was so loose you could pretty much turn it with yur hands. The factory loctite still looked good so I just tightened all the bolts on the frame back to spec and no more creak. Nothing like a simple fix!
