    EX Frame flex

    Has anybody else found issues with the frame flexing while sprinting? I laid into a monster sprint last night and it just felt all wiggly. Then there was a pop, I inspected the frame very well and I think it was just a gear slipping.

    On my new EX9 with 60 miles, I noticed the main pivot is loose. The bolt is tight, so I am going to have my LBS take a look at it.

    yeah, with DS bikes you gotta keep up a little more on maintanence. I've had to tighten my linkage up twice since new, not a big deal at all though. If it keeps keeps keeps happening I will re locktite everything according to manufacturer's spec. Look at it like airing up your tires, shocks, checking your stem, headset, and crank tightness.

    Use a torque wrench when tightening and tighten to spec!
