I think that's supposed to be inside the fork.
Might be a good place to start. Maybe put both hands on the handlebars too instead of doing that.
Why would You hit Your arm with a damper shaft during the ride?
Anyone else still waiting for the fucking rabbit to appear?
Anyway, as You removed the bottom bolt from it, the rebound needle rattles against the damper shaft inner walls.
Hysteresis caning. Puts the Damping in BDSM.
it still rattles with the bolt threaded unless i thread it until it bottoms on the needle, which can't happen when fully assembled because lowers.
i can hear it when i ride. yes i ride with the bottom bolt installed and tightened to spec.
before i took everything apart i could make it rattle by hitting the lowers with the base of my hand.
A classic example of not enough shims...
what the fuck did i just watch
in all srs... i would just fire up the service manual and make sure everything is looking good and tight
Have you tried hitting yourself away from the bike/part to make sure it's not you?
Could also be fixed with generous amounts of epoxy.
What about filing it down?
I've only got 2 arms. I'd prefer to keep them both as OEM parts.
If it rattles when you tap your arm, try a full swing at your balls and report back.
Try it in a pure vacuum, I bet things will get really quiet.
that's a sram product, it's a feature
Expandable foam does a great job of silencing noises. Consider using it instead of oil.
I filled up a monocoque 2004 norco shore with this.
Can confirm, quieted things down.
so it went from heavy to literal boat anchor?
The high expansion stuff is .06 lbs/cubic foot. I wouldn't expect a bike frame to have even close to 1 ft^3 of volume.
you clearly aren't familiar with a monocoque norco shore.
Good lord, my eyes.
Do not google.
If you think this
There's a whole world of pre 2004 Norco that would assplode your head
I do like the saddle angle on this though. You know. For climbing. Like chris porter's zipcodemobile
they took all the bad parts of a spesh big hit and foes DHS mono and made it into a single abomination. that takes skill. or meth. probably meth.
specialized ain't got nuthin on Norco
reread my comment.
You know I don't like hitting you baby but you leave me no choice
they didn't limit the insanity to the freeride world either:
I bet you keep a carton of spoiled milk in the fridge for the occasional whiff.
I don't but that's a great idea!
I wonder if the designer got paid by the length of welds in the design?
Well, the thread at the rebound needle end should hold it together... My suggestion would be taking the whole unit apart and checking it the rebound needle thread is not stripped (or if the needle is not unscrewed totally) or the o-ring is not damaged. While assembling it, put a lot of grease between the shaft and the needle too. 1 more thing that comes to my mind is, that maybe You ride without the rebound knob installed? It makes the needle centered, therefore should help with the rattling.
1 more thing, vid is not HD so I can't see, but it looks like You are missing the wave spring behind the check shim...
That would sound exactly like in the vid, as the check shim has a little bit of float.
I always thought the frame noise was a feature to cover the rider's whining about how much his bike sucks.
That bike was actually pretty good (the one I had, not any of that boxy crap). Just flexy as shit because Canadians didn't turn back then. Locking up brakes and running into trees was all the rage in America's hat. As well documented in any video from the period.
And hucking to flat? Rectilinear riding was all the rage.
Guys, I think he's trying to tap out some sort of distress signal! Quick-who knows Morse code?!
