Finally having a taut back end again, after engaging two specialists to solve the troubles I couldn't self diagnose.

What I'd thought was a single knock in the shock or pivots turned out to be both.

James the Dirt Merchant sorted out the deformed pivot bolt caps that had prevented proper tension, and Dougal vacuumed the air out of the shock that was causing undamped rebound.

Mate, it's so good to have a tight quiet bike again.

Had that too, what did you do?
New caps?
Just put a washer under the bolt head to take up more of the bolt thread so proper torque could be applied.

New caps.
But now that I know to keep an eye on it I'll do washers if it happens again. Those caps are soft and thin, seem a bit designed to fail.

Tama obviously has too much spare time. Has he considered building a website about riding bikes?

Last parts orders for the gravel-capable touring bike placed - more wolf tooth b-rad rails, morse cages, and a 180mm disc for the front since the Spyres are almost touching the front spokes with a 160mm LOL

Where did you order the b-rad rails from? I'm going to need one or two move some bottle cages out of the way of a frame bag.
