Hi Guys

Had my first opportunity to setup my new Spectral ON:7 today since taking delivery on Monday. Whilst setting my sag I noticed a odd grinding noise from the Rockshox Deluxe R rear shock. If I weight and unweight the bike the noise occurs in the first part of its travel and stops approximately around the first sag line. Something is not right! Just want to confirm before contacting Canyon. Here is the video:

Thanks

Grant

I read this because I too have a Rockshox Deluxe R on my Focus.

Sorry G-Bru, I turned up the volume to max on your clip and I couldn't hear anything untoward.

Are you sure it's the shock and not the mounting pivots? It would worth deflating the shock and removing it so you can lube the pivots. It won't take long and stranger things have been missed when assembling bikes. The worst that can happen is that you end up with lubed pivots! :)

Good shout Steve, pretty sure it’s the shock, but will remove it to confirm. Can’t hurt to check! Just itching to ride the damn thing. (first EMTB)! 😉

Best wishes with that. :)

I've got a bike with a flat battery that won't charge! :(
