    Final section of last weekend's trials my Old BAGG made an on noise coming off an obstacle.
    Guess I found the problem, Now I need to wash and investigate further but more than likely a new shock is what I will need.

    Got the linkage greased and back together, but im still having trouble with that damn rear tire. I had an aired up tube in it all week & it looked like it would work, but nooooo.

    I looked for the video I once saw but couldn't find it. Try this...

    Get the tire on the rim
    Put a lubricated tube between the rim and tire (like a sandwich)
    Put enough air in the tube to fill the gap
    As you air up the tire it will squeeze the tube outta the way and set the bead.

    Video made it look easy. YMMV

    plenty of youtubes on this, but think the biggest tip on its use is the very strong solution (like 50/50) of soapy water, and spray/apply it in large amount. My donut popped up in the air, and the tire seated in a second.
