Grease your shock linkage bearings kids!
Grease your shock linkage bearings kids! Don’t be like Roger and ignore all the helpful suggestions to grease them yourself as soon as you get your new bike from the dealer. Otherwise yours may look like mine! (2 out of the 3 bearings in this photo are shot.)
I’m extremely disappointed that these aren’t properly greased at the factory, or during dealer setup. There’s no sign that there was ever any grease in the bearing shown in the photo. The larger bearing in the photo was in great shape and still had plenty of grease.
