Thanks for that. Sounds too easy
Had a quick search and nothing there at the moment. Will keep an eye out. Did find some a while ago but they had strange top linkage connections, so got me worried that there was a specific top and bottom linkage type or size too. Seems not.
Man this is like therapy... I may try my luck on a few other things to see if I can regain FSR karma.
Thing number 1: I've always had is a 'knocking' while pedaling under load. Feels like a bearing has gone square in the bottom bracket kinda knocking. Replace the BB, changed wheels, checked chain and pedals and all the usual stuff. If I strip the real linkages and grease up, it solves it for a week or so. What's that all about?
Thing number 2: Due to repeated Thing number 1 maintenance, one of the rear linkage bolts can't be removed. It anchors in the middle (as there's a bolt on the other side also) and the 'middle' now just spins, so the bolt can't be undone. Other than 'take it to an engineer' or 'buy a new linkage', any tips? Maybe a cutaway diagram exists so I can at least see what's going on. I assume I'll have to drill it at some stage though and replace the linkage... if I can find one that is!
We gotta stick together keeping these babies on the dirt.
