ASK THE BMXPerts: BEARING IN THE FRAME
Bookmark and Share

Dear BMXPLUS,

So i just got a Sapient Saga Pro, and when I lift the back end of the bike upwards, I heard like a ball rolling inside the frame. Then I put the down and then it sounds like the ball rolls down. I am thinking it is like a BB pellet in there? The frame is full chromoly, the sound is coming from the top tube. Please help!

If it is coming from your top tube then it is more then likely a headset bearing. Check your bearings, you don’t want to be riding around with a bearing missing. Replace the bearing or entire cage set, check the bearing race for damage and replace if necessary and if you cant get the bearing out of the frame, then shoot a bit of grease in there and roll the bearing towards the grease. It will stick and shut up. Good luck.
