Re: Cartridge bearing is rough when pressed in, but fine when taken out

The BB is Hope with it's own Hope ceramic bearing in. Another problem is if you knock the bearings out of this, you're having to whack the center to do it, which is all very well if you're not planning on putting them back in again but you can't get at the outer ring to remove them, only to press t...

Re: Carradice Super C rackbag on a Tubus Logo - stable?
