I've just bought a bike and when you pick the rear end up there is some movement before the wheel comes off the ground. My question is, is it the du bushes need replacing or what? Any help would be great. Rob :)

Suspension bushings probably - strip down the complete linkage and it should be obvious if this is the case.
What suspension design - four bar, faux bar, single pivot ??
