- Bit of help needed – headset cartridge bearings.
I need to replace the cartridge bearings in my headset as its started leaking brown crud and feels a bit notchy.
The bike is a 2010 stumpjumper fsr but I cant seem to find a definitive answer as to what bearings are needed. The spec sheet describes the headset as:
campy style cartridge bearings for integrated alloy head tube.
The headset has cane creek written on it.
Cane creek’s website reckons I need:
SHIS:IS42/28.6|IS42/30 (1-1/8″ Italian Integrated IS Standard)
which doesn’t mean a lot to me to be honest.
Could someone point me in the right direction, either to replacement bearings or full headset. I’ve tried to get my head round all the different standards but its all a bit too much.Posted 6 years agoschmikenSubscriber
This is what you need – 45 x 45 bearings (as opposed to most ‘normal’ ones which are 45 x 36).Posted 6 years ago
This is what my headset looks like: http://www.evanscycles.com/products/fsa/orbit-ce-integrated-1-1-8-inch-headset-ec007331Posted 5 years agoitsmygameMember
Hi mate. I just replaced the headset on my 2010rockhopper it has exactly the same hs as yours. It was labelled up as a fsr headset.
Ring don skene in Cardiff they are a spesh dealer …. Just use google to find number. They will now know what your talking about.
( they are 45 x 45 but the outer diameter is different / the chamfered edge is different. It was a pain in the bum )
Hope this helps. Whatever happens post back with ur findings.Posted 5 years ago
