- Online FS bikes and bearing changes
Say I bought a Bird, or a Canyon full susser, which needed bearings changed every year or so and I would prefer to get it done professionally – is this something that a typical LBS would generally be happy to do, or would they be less inclined as not a brand they sell ?Posted 3 months agoPoopscoopSubscriber
I can honestly say that learning how to change the bearings in a bike yourself is one of the most satisfying spannering sessions you will ever do.
Unlike a lbs that changed the bearings in my bike a couple of years back…. You can make sure it is done right too.👍
My Jeffsy has 11 bearings to change by the way…. Still totally doable,I just take my time and do it right.Posted 3 months agomartinhutchMember
Just look out for SH or discounted bearing presses/pullers during that first year rather than when you start to hear them creaking.
Chances are you’ll end up with a kit for little more than it costs for one LBS service, and as mentioned above, it’s a very satisfying job.
You can make a press out of threaded rod, and sockets, for very little, if you’re in any way mechanically minded.Posted 3 months ago
