An Equal Opportunity Offender


Tuesday, November 29, 2011


This bike had some "drag" in the headset. I pulled the top cap and I knew immediately what the problem was. The top bearing was fixable but the bottom was completely gone. Unfortunately this is an old USPS Trek with a 1 1/4" bottom bearing size with no taper on the bearing. The Trek dealer in town said he could possibly get one for me but he would have to call and find out. For now, it still has drag.


  1. Trek has these dumb bearings. We call the Twreck shop in town whenever we come across these.

  2. Any luck replacing the bearing?

    My Klein(trek) has the same silly lower bearing. It popped off easy enough... now to find a new one.
