Whatta strop'r



FSR's are just like that cuz of the way their chainstays are. Both my FSR's had this problem, one was a Specialized one wasn't. For me going to a SRAM derailleur made a big difference, with Shimano my derailleur used to slap the chainstay something chronic

I found with my 2007 Stumpy that I needed to pad the derailier, that made most of the noise go away, combined with the supplied stay protector the bike was reasonably quiet

specialized used to supply a similar device with the older FSR bikes

I have a 2007 model and when going downhill on makara's rockier tracks, the noise from the (I think) chain banging around is quite off putting! Is this a common trait of this model or could it be the SRAM rear mech not having enough spring grunt to keep the chain taut?
Air your suggestions/opinions here.....

i have a 2000 stumpy fsr, (retired in the basement now) same deal, always is,was,and will be. the solution for me was a couple of those stick-on rubber dot pads you can get for underneath home appliances, stuck onto the derailleur at the "elbow" of it closest to the chainstay. it bounces up and whacks the bike. nothing you can do except dampen it. or some inner tube tied around where it hits.
