Just wondering if anyone else has a snap sound when you pull the back wheel side to side. I have new tires and chain & sprockets to put on so I will disect it anyway, but if anybody knows what I'm talking about it would be great. :)

Pull that rear wheel off and check your bearings because thats not good.

It's time for disassembly.

Check bearings, relub/change.

And don't forget to inspect all the WELDS and linkage.

Are the shock bushings easy to change? Do you have to press them out? The only real slop is in the shock mounts. The snap sounded like the brake caliper. :)
