About to replace the head bearings, are the TOP & the BOTTOM the same? Any advice on which is better Original Ball or Tapered. thanks folks
Just found that out, bottom bearing came off ok but the seal is buggered. bearings are both the same :thumbright:Can't remember if they're the same but I think so !!
Tapered are best as they spread the load more evenly but the quality of the bearings you buy is more important than type.
I always buy a new lower dust seal (the one with an interferance fit on the bottom of the steerer tube) before stripping the bike down as it's very difficult to remove the lower bearing without damaging this.
