    AWCycles in Reading usually stock them. Albeit bearings from bike shops work out more expensive than those picked up at bearing suppliers.

    Can anyone help?

    My headset is running rough and on dismantling the lower race is shagged.

    The code on the bearing is Cane Creek HSS20130 STEEL.

    I usually buy my bearings from here but cant find them!

    Am I being dumb!!??

    The bearing is 41mm in diameter with a 30mm bore and 7mm thick. It has a 45 degree bottom edge.

    Can anyone help in finding me a replacement? Here's hoping

    Cheers

    you can get S-3 bearings here (they're 'steel')

    i'm pretty sure they're the same size as S-8 bearings, which you can get here (they're stainless steel)

    if your bearings died from rust, it might be worth getting the stainless ones, but if they just got a bit gritty, stainless won't help, get the standard cheaper ones.

    41.8 x 30 x 7 45degree is the campag standard – I think they're the same bearings as BMX headsets.

    Perfect. Thanks ahwiles.

    Didn't think to check the obvious presuming a bearing supplier would be cheaper.
