Headset bearings / Adjustment

Headset bearings / Adjustment

Postby hannos » Mon Oct 08, 2012 3:28 pm

My BMC SLC01 (2010) is a tiny bit wobbly in the headset so I need to adjust it. Does anyone know what type of bearings it has in case I need to replace those (assuming re-adjusting it doesn't fix it)?

I checked the BMC site but didn't find any guides to servicing a BMC.

Maybe your headset is a tad loose? Try tighening your top cap, as thats what holds everything together (dont forget to loosen your stem bolts)

As for bearings, they should be just your run of the mill 1 1/8 sealed bearings.

Im putting mine together at the moment :wink:
