    Where to get RIZE suspention Bearings ?

    Just stripped down the rear suspension on my Rize, and found that the linkage and main pivot bearings could do with being replaced.

    The only place in Europe i have found the parts online is http://www.cannondale-parts.de/

    They seem to be rather pricy, as there looking for 61 euro ( $75) delivered to the UK , for the 6 link bearings and 2 main pivot bearings.

    here is the part codes;

    KP073 - linkage bearings

    KB61902 - main pivot bearings

    Does anyone know where i could pick up these bearing cheaper? Or if there is some generic bearings that will fit?

    Thanks..

    Charlie..

    Make sure you measure your old bearings....
    G8 bearings, way better quality than OEM (and cheaper!)

    You need 6 x 6800 and 1 x 6902 bearings.
    I found the official price of SKF bearings:
    - 61800-2RS1 = 20.70
    - 61902-2RS1 = 21.95

    Total = 6 x 20.7 + 1 x 21.95 = 146.15

    @ Dr. Cannondale:

    1 x piece Lefty hub bearing small & pivot axle Rize Rush Prophet 12.00
    1 x piece KP073 22.00 22.00

    Subtotal 34.00

    Delivery method DHL
    This Service is only available in Germany 5.00

    Total = 39.00

    I think the prices aren't so bad, the quality of the SKF bearings are super, but are they 3 times the standard Cannondale bearings price worth it?

    If they last longer, yes.

    You shouldn't need to take apart your suspension and replace the bearing every 6 months.

    Also look at Phil Wood bearings, they are tough. Now if only Chris King would make suspension bearing with a 5 yr warranty, then we would be set. Maybe I will suggest that to him at Downieville if he is there this yr.
