Hula hoop bushes - size for Prophet?
I would like to upgrade/ change the bushes on my Prophet and have found a website that sells them. However, my bike is currently stored elsewhere so I cannot measure the size before ordering from this website http://www.mountainbikecomponents.co...=Strong+Bushes
Can someone please tell me
1. the size of the bushes
2 how many you need
3. the size of the tool needed (look at the bottom of the website/page)
Thank you soooo much + have a nice weekend.
1. the size of the bushes -
That depends on what shock you have...http://www.tftunedshox.com/info/moun..._bushings.aspx
Though you can get 'std' bushing from any bearing/engineering supplier for a £1 a piece... this is where I get mine from now.
2 how many you need -
2, one top and one at the bottom.
3. the size of the tool needed (look at the bottom of the website/page) -
The tool on that page will do the job just fine (TF Tuned do one [I have one of each & there nothing in it], and there cheaper on ebay IIRC)...but you need to find out what size bushing your replacing
The job can be done with a couple of right sized sockets & a vice (or G-clamp), but is so much easier with the right tool.
