I do the following once a month if I’m riding a lot. Remove shock, rear wheel, and chain. Remove dog bones and flip chips. Use a bungee cord or two to suspend rear triangle from seat rails prior to removing the main pivot. Clean everything thoroughly and pack the pivots with quality grease. Reassemble, apply blue loctite to cleaned bolt threads if needed and overtorque trunnion shock bolts by 10 lb-in.

I go through a lot of q-tips to clean all of the pivots and bearing faces. I do this over a drop cloth so the conical pivot and shock spacers don’t roll away if they fall out of the frame during disassembly.
Got any tips on disassembling the old Uprising?

I’ve never seen an uprising in person.
Me either but I love that name. I think it might be their best name?

The Undead and Uprising were top tier names in my opinion.

It's a once in a life time experience to ride one.

I am probably going to take the rear triangle off this week. Any tips? I have never disassemble an Evil linkage. What should I look for/be careful for? Anyone got any tips for getting the flip chip out easier?

How long does it usually take someone like you? Evening? Is it easier than a Santa Cruz? I wanna know what I am getting myself into time wise.

Cool thanks. I have done it a few times on my old Santa Cruz and it took for ever… Then I realize on time I took it apart the bearings in my lower link were blown up somehow and were just hanging by a thread.

I'll do my best to describe this, and it might be nothing at all...

I feel like I hear a hollow thud sound from my rear end when riding through rough stuff. I can recreate it by bouncing up and down in a parking lot. I have checked all my bolts, calipers and rotors seem fine, drivetrain is on with no issues. My guess is it is wheels, but the spoke are all relatively tight. I can't remember if I had this with my last bike, it might have been that I couldn't hear it over all the other noise it made.

So my super vague question is, does anyone else hear a hollow thud or generally more noise from their back end when compared to their front?

A couple beers if I have a clean and organized work space and no distractions. I prefer to take my time and enjoy working on my bike, but you could prob knock it out in a half hour and do it right if you're in a hurry.

When you bounce does it do it repeatedly and get quieter or just once? Because I remember it happening on my Insurgent when I dropped it. It would thud.

I would say it is the same sound every time.

Do your cranks spin back when you drop it?

Just went and checked. They do. I would say it takes about 5-6 drops for the cranks to do one full rotation.

Both if you like 26 inch.

Based on what I know, the uprising was well ahead of it's time!
