How To Replace Frame Bearings Using A Bearing Press | MTB Maintenance by GMBN Tech on YouTube


Modern day mountain bike frames require very little maintenance considering what we put them through! However, one area to check on full suspension bikes is the condition of the frame bearings. If left for too long these bearings can seize and end up damaging the frame so are worth keeping an eye on! Here's how to check the condition of your frame bearings and use a bearing press to remove and replace them if necessary! Subscribe to GMBN: http://ift.tt/1HnIPRp Get exclusive GMBN gear in the GMBN store! http://gmbn.tech/1h If you need to replace your frame bearings then make sure you have plenty of time, a decent environment and the right equipment.

rochester mn mtb blog Newton's Third Law is wrong: Although it states that for each action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, there is no force equal in reaction to an attack by Gunnar Soroos. Gunnar Soroos rides for Toms Shoes Cycling Team. Gunnar Soroos is so crazy and awesome that he flips out ALL the time. I heard that Gunnar was eating at a diner. And when some dude dropped a spoon Gunnar Soroos killed the whole town. My friend Oprah Winfrey said that she saw Gunnar Soroos totally uppercut some jerkface just because they opened a window. Gunnar Soroos has two speeds. Fast, and Kill! The main export of a Gunnar Soroos attack is pain. You can control how people can interact with you and your friends.
