O The Shame
#1
:B:B:B
ok the manic depressive steve has now gone :B, what i thought was the wheel being shot to pieces was actually something a lot  cheaper and alot smaller.  in the rockyness of BBH i managed to lose a linkage bolt nut on the what i think is called the linkage arm?  this then when riding along was slipping and hitting the frame causing the frame shuddering THUD

the back wheel is holding up, turns out that a regrease some new bearings and a tighten up has stopped the wobble, im now hoping this will last the next month or so untill i can afford a new set  ;D

Have a very good look over that frame as if you were missing a bolt and any part of the whole linkage system was moving around enough to hit the frame theres a chance you could have cracked a weld, damaged the frame, bent the linkage, buggered the shock etc. I would check any T&C with Halfords as regarding who is responsible for ensuring they are tight. There may be an initial period which they guarentee it for but probably only a month or so. Locktite doesnt always work first time, ive had rotor bolts come loose etc before

due to where it is im hoping its fine

the bolt thats missing is the one that connects to the seat stays ? (think thats the one) the top part on the rear triangle  :Smile any how, instead of staying in place under compression its slowly slipped down the frame part scraping the paint work off so im hoping that its only put minimal stress on the frame

if not im screwed  Undecided

I would remove all of them, use locktite and let it dry for a day before using again
