    HELP please I have a 2007 Cannondale rush 4 (carbon) that is designed to take a lefty but comes with normal fox forks, its got an integrated FSA headset. Its been fine for a few years but I need to replace the bearings after the last winter. The sizing on the outside of the bearings is obscured by a patina on the metal. I've acquired a few different bearing sets but nothing fits, they seem to be a bit shallower than most, does anyone know the size or where I can find out please? they have a black/ dark blue ring over the bearings

    cheers

    Have you tried cleaning the bearings up gently with wire wool? It might reveal the size. Alternatively a bearing stockist should be able to measure them with a micrometer, they will be cheaper anyway from a stockist.

    thanks, I washed them in washing up liqiud, greased them and put them back in for the summer. They seem fine but I'll get them replaced in Sept when I have some more cash. cheers
