Evening!

My I drive has got a knocking noise when pedaling that's been doing my head in but every time I get it up on the stand there is no sign of it!

It's only happening when the I'm riding it. I suspect it's the bearings in the frame but not sure?

Any one else experienced this, and more importantly, how can I fix it?

Any help much appreciated!

James

I used to get this

Think i ignored it in the end (cant remember whether its an actual problem, shouldnt knock really)


But in hindsight, could be the dogbone/bushes?

I have a service guide if you need

Almost definitely the dogbone bushes. They used to wear out quite quickly but could be the shock bushes.
I got my spares from BETD before I retired my frame to the loft.

Real do!

Cheers for that service guide, it doesnt look as complicated as i thought! also checked the shock bushes but they are sound. So, i have got some dog bone bushes ordered, when they arrive i'll bang them in and hopefully we'll be reet!!!
