I'll upload a video later. My suspension isn't acting right, so I'm trying to sort that out too.

I drew blood on the first attempt when my foot slipped off the pedal. Knew I should have put the 5-10's on vs the tennis shoes. O well.

On another note. Talking to diamondback again for warranty on my rear shock... At least they have great customer service.

What is the issue with your rear shock and what shock is it?
I ask because sometimes the quickest solution is go through Fox or SRAM.

Top pic is normal.

Bottom pic is not normal, as you can see it looks like I'm sitting on it when I'm not.
