Hope pro 2 bearings seizing.

MudSharK Wrote:Sound advice, I will go for those recommended.
Bought the Blue seal bearings, front and rear, might as well remove both - these have the close contact 2RS seals, ebay £15 post paid.
I will let you know how I get on.

After my last ride the bearings remained free wheeling for a couple of days, but now they have almost completely seized up again.

Thanks
Just ordered these too as need to change mine on the cheap.

Hope you didn't spend loads on the bearing tools, it's p!ss easy just using sockets and an extention bar, just did mine in about 5 minuets. Also converted from QR to 142x12mm Big Grin

Just be a bit careful on your socket selection. Most sockets have a bevelled or rounded leading face & if you slightly undersize the socket you're using the inner face will damage the bearing seal or worse & its difficult to tell if you're doing this because its a face you cant see. The proper bearing removal drift are a much better option if you have the money but appreciate that a socket will suffice in lieu of anything else ... just be a little careful

Yep i made that mistake the first time years ago, big dent in the seal. Always make sure i use the right sockets now.
