#!markdown Here's what I know: the Switch Infinity Link should not require any maintenance. Those seals have been tested through millions of cycles. Yeti VP/Engineering lead Steve Hoogendoorn is still riding the 3 year old prototype and the original Switch Infinity Link is going strong. See my article about the SB5c to learn more about how Fox tested it. Looking at the pivot hardware, honestly it's no worse than most, and better than many. Obviously we haven't had enough time on the bike to comment on these things from a long term perspective, but after 2.5 months, nary a squeak. in other words, your concerns are valid, but I don't see any additional risk/cause for concern with this design than with most/all in the same category.
