'Knocking' noise - full suspension
My Scott Genuis has developed a knocking noise from the rear end. It only happens on the trails and seems worse when the suspension is in full travel mode (it's quite infrequent when the shock is locked out).
When the shock was serviced it had new bushes and bolts installed. I have also check the bottom bracket, greased the seatpost, checked the pedals, brake rotors, cassette etc. I cannot recreate the 'knock' by shaking the bike, lifting the rear end up (as you would expect with a shock mount problem).
Given it is worse on full travel mode and only when the suspension is active, I am thinking this is likely to be a pivot bearing or a shock issue (although the shock had a complete rebuild with mostly new parts only a few weeks ago).
The noise is quite a hollow knock, it definately isn't chain slap or cables banging.
Any suggestions on how I can trace the noise, or what you think it may be?
The bike rides fine and the travel seems good, it is just an annoying noise! Short term solution may be to turn the iPod on while on the trails
