    Trying my luck: Versus Blitz II help

    The Blitz II has been fun. After more than 2 season of use, the main pivot (behind the BB) have develop some play. Nothing serious, nor noticeable when riding, just want to get it fix.

    I gather that Versus Bikes is out of biz and therefore no chance of contacting them for help. Reaching out to see if anyone here knows where to get the bearings.

    Thanks.

    If you ask the right people, they'll keep telling you Versus is coming back, and should you happen to get them, they'll even take a deposit.

    The bearings are fine it is the nylon spacer between that can cause some play. I havent had any issue with mine and their is a minor amount of play but I havent had to look for them yet. If you are concerned you will need to disassemble the chainstay and visit a bearing/bushing warehouse and have them match up some replacements.

    Gakster, I had the same play develop in my Blitz. I called Versus back in the day and they sent me out some new shims free of charge. I quit riding "downhill" and my frame is now hanging on the wall. Anyway.. PM me your address and I can mail these extra shims to you.

    The old worn ones help the cornering giving it that hinge type effect

    Thanx for the thought
