Okay so the anthem creaks annoyingly, whipping out the shock looks like the bottom bearings could do with being replaced. I've seen katec sells then for approx £35 so how hard / long will it take?
I've got torq 12 aug bank hol and could do with the bike for then ( got a trail hard tail as back up) but in morzine for a week on the dh bike so I'm limited in time frame.
Other factor is this will be its last major outing as I will be replacing with a 2014 bike when they are out soon.
I could just leave it. Not sure i could cope for racing 6 hours on it creaking away...
