Pivot Bearings (or whatever they're called)
#1
So my Cube has developed a bit of play in the rear..

I think i've narrowed it down to the shock pivot that connects to the rocker arm linkage (if you know what I mean)

As this is the first bike I've wanted to bother looking after :B, what bearing should I be looking for?  The Cube website is useless for technical stuff.

+ 1 - do you mean the lower shock bushing? If so try the mojo website or a call to them. Can be a little fiddly to fit without the right tools but there are plenty of experts on here!

That's the phrase..
Amazing how much more helpful Google can be, when you look for the correct keyword  :Smile

Anybody know any local shops I can get that from?

Update:

That has to be the cheapest and easiest bit of maintanence I've ever done to a technical part of a bike :o
OK, so I used a packing screw from a recently delivered washing machine toknow the old bushing out, after a bit of failed improv...

But it feels like new again now ;D

Cheers for the pointers....
And thanks to TFTuned for delivering on a Saturday 24 hours after ordering :o

Now on to the forks :Smile
