    FSA Mega Exo 19mm bearing cover (cup or knackered BB also good)

    Bought a cheap runaround recently. Last job on the long list of things to sort was the BB which wasn't running evenly. It appears that the last clown who had the cranks off, put them back on minus the drive-side bearing cover. I've refreshed the bearing grease and expect the BB will run...

    Jockey wheels; Bearing or not?

    Took the jockey wheels off/out, gave them a really serious clean, probably way over due although they get the brush & degreaser on a regular basis. Anyway, my question is, do jockey wheels have bearing in them or just run on the spindle in the centre? Short of pulling one of them to pieces...

    Advice on bearing condition please.

    I've never worked on bearings before so improving my knowledge by servicing the cup and cone front hub on the mtb. It had a bit of a grumble going on so thought I'd have a look. The balls look fine to me but the cones look pitted, one more than the other. The races in the hub look ok to my...

    Zonda Bearing Overhaul

    Have taken these wheels off my bike, as they were feeling a tad rough and I have been using my Carbon rims during the "Summer".
