    5/64" Steel Ball Bearing

    If you know this size...then you know why I'm asking. Does the class know of anyone local with this size for sale...a walk in place? I can find a pack of 1000 online for 45 bucks, even distributors out of PHX...but I can't find a local store and I don't need a 1000 since I don't plan on loosing too many of these over the life of my TALAS fork. Hell, I'm willing to buy a 100 just for my mistake...but a 1000?

    I lost 2 of them today when servicing the fork and gnarhammer found one on the shop floor...not sure how he did that since I think he's blind. I'm still down one bearing and would like to remove the zip tie which is now holding my low speed compression and lockout lever on my extra fancy fork which is now a ghetto fork.....

    Thanks in advance for any beta...extra thanks and a sixer to the person who can hand me one tomorrow.

    Why not just order them from Fox?

    I know a few bike shops in town stock them as well.

    Because I want/need it now...hence the need to stay local, not to mention that I'm a SLOB (Support Locally Owned Business).

    Do you mind telling me who stocks the bearing locally so I can go VFR Direct before work tomorrow?

    I'll backfill my 5/64" bearing packrat supply once I get Ms. Cheg Du to sell me less than 3 metric tons

    I've heard my brother mention a bearing house downtown called Motion Industries. It's worth a shot.
