Bearing failures are rare. Usually just grease leakage, and not really a "failure." Still, it's still a good idea to keep a couple spares on hand, since they are easily replaced and very inexpensive. Please note: this bearing is for the Deluxe Tire only. It will not fit our Lightweight tire.
Sold individually. There are two bearings in each wheel, so buy two for a complete Set
Bearing Replacement Instructions:
- Place the tire on a pair of boards to allow the bearing to be pushed out the bottom.
- Gently tap the bottom bearing out with a punch. Do not hit the top bearing as it is impossible to drive it past the center flange of the hub.
- Flip the tire over and tap out the remaining bearing.
- Tap the new bearings into place. Tip: Tap on a large socket of a diameter slightly smaller than the OD of the bearing to prevent bearing damage.
