    2008 Trailfox 02 bearing question...

    I recently acquired a 2008 Trailfox 02 frame for quite cheap. It isnt in the best shape, paint is scuffed up big time and bearings seem a bit "gritty" for lack of a better word. I wanna clean it up so it will perform closer to "new". Looking at replacing all the old bearings with new ones. I am trying to find info on exactly what model bearings i need for replacing the old ones. I was looking to replace them with Enduro bearings. Anyone know where I can find a tech spec sheet listing which bearings (size or just model) needed for the frame? Or should I just email the folks at BMC and ask them for specifics?


    Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    The RWC Trailfox bearing kit for $34 is the one you need. I also picked up a "beat up" 08 Trailfox 01 this past summer and ordered that very kit to rebuild the frame. I ended up removing the old bearings and installing the news without too much trouble. Best upgrade I have made to the bike and it feels tight and smooth...still breaking it in like a new bike after only a few months of riding. Let me know how you make out.
