    Knolly Warden rattle

    Hi guys, and thanks for the acceptance :-)

    Sorry if this has been posted before but has anyone experienced a rattle from the Warden Alu frame ? Not a squeak ( fixed that by changing the cane "creak" with a fox ) but a rattle.
    I cannot reconstruct the noise while bike is stationary but it rattles a lot when going over roots and uneven surfaces and sounds like it could be the linkage.
    It's driving me crazy so I hope someone can help :-)

    Which Warden (year, sub model)? Some have internal cable routing. That may be the source of your rattle.

    It's a 2016 Warden 27.5 frame and only internal routing is for the dropper seatpost cable. I have added open cell foam in the seat tube to try and isolate the problem but it is unfortunately not that.

    Maybe a cable is hitting the forks or frame while riding causing a rattle, had this on my scout a while back.

    Internal cable knocking on the frame would be my guess too.

    You can try this method...

    I bet its slop in your bushings and your pivots are rattling when cycled under load. $30 off their website

    ^^^^ I can't see that one. But if that were correct, it would be easy to isolate.
