Hi all,

Less than a week ago I purchased a new X1 and I love it! However, this brand new bike has a loud squeaking rear shock. I ride with a friend that also has an X1 and his bike is silent. Its a little embarrassing when other people out walking or other riders can hear me coming from over 100 feet away. I'm not sure what I can do to eliminate this noise and be sure I'm not doing any damage to the shock seals or other components. I just dont want to cause problems down the road. Thanks...
