Hey guys, looking for some help with this. I got a cheap Boardman pro FS 2011 from ebay and I'm pretty sure there's spacers missing from this pivot. Without a spacer it tightens up so the two parts of frame are pushed up agaisnt each other which to me seems like a bad design considering its a pivot. So just looking if someone out there has owned one of these and can help... Thanks for any help :smile:

I've had to contact Boardman a few times regarding spec on my own and customer's bikes and they've always been pretty helpful. May be worth dropping them a line if no one here has first hand experience with your exact model. Good luck

Have you opened up the pivot to check. Pretty sure there are a couple of washers either side of the bearing (I have a 2014 FS Pro)
Yeah I replaced the bearings and thanks that's helpful do you know if your spacers are metal/aluminium or are they a plastic type of bushing?
Thanks
