ASK THE BMXPerts: LOSING THE BEARING RACE
Bookmark and Share

Love the mag keep up the good work I recently had a bearing race break on my front rim and was wondering if you might have an extra laying around?

ANS- Broken bearing races are pretty common, wait, no they aren’t, what are we talking about. Bearings are pretty bomb proof, so if you are busting bearings, there is probably something more at play, like a poorly adjusted or insufficiently lubed hub. But, in your defense, even then there is the rare instance of a bearing race that just wasn’t long for this world and needs to be replaced. Fortunately there are there increasingly rare places called “Bike Shops”. Any quality shop will have a broad selection of replacement bearings and since most bikes, from BMX to Mountain Bikes use the same sealed and unsealed bearings; chances are pretty good you can solve this problem today. Unfortunately, we are not a bike shop. If you don’t have a local shop or are yet to master Google to search your nearest shop out, you can call the company who made your hub and see if they cant give you the specific part number of the replacement bearing you need, which you can then use to place an order online or through your local shop. BMX Plus! Bike Shop, out!
