Hello,

The trais shock on my Spec Stumpjumper FSR makes clicking noises when
compressed.
When riding it sounds like a cable that bangs on my frame (what I first
thought it was).

It can be reproduced very easily by either:
1) let air out of shock (makes compression easier, note that when pumped it
sounds the same), then compress rear shock repeatedly by pressing on saddle
2) taking shock out of frame, let air out and compress shock

Anyone else noticed this? It occurs on my Anniv and my wife's Expert as
well. Has anyone have (other) problems with the Triad shock?

Thanks,
Caspar

PS: if I wanted clicking noises I would have bought an Epic....

No, when taken out of frame (see point 2) it's the same: clicking noises.
This has developped over time and it's not the bushings either.
A Fox Triad has been developed for Spec and offers: ProPedal/Lockout/Normal
modes.
