    Bearing Size for Time Z Strong

    Time ATAC series appears to take a: 696 2RS (6mm ID x 15mm OD x 5mm W) bearing. What about the Time Z Strong line?

    I believe that the Strongs are different than the standard Time Z line (which takes the same as the ATAC).

    So, QBP catalogue (for 2013) page 689 lists the 696 bearing for ATAC, Alium, HP & Z Pedals (as well as for ATAC XS Ti Carbon, XS Carbon, and XS).

    It lists (qbp part #) BB8801 for "2000 & Newer ATAC pedals" and RXS/RXE. I'm a little confused b/c I thought the 696 bearing was for the newer ATACs.

    The 8801 is a 12x21x5 (mm: id, od, w) and appears to be a "heavier duty" bearing.

    Anyway, I still don't clearly see the bearing for Time Z Strongs.

    So, the Z Strong does, in fact, use the 696 bearing.

    I was having difficulty with my replacement b/c the old bearing (i.e., a destroyed, mangled pile of steel, greese, and bearing balls) left behind its inner sleeve on the needle/axle ... which, without the other axle side-by-side, made me think the bearing sets were quite different. After tearing down both side by side, I realized the mistake, extracted the inner sleeve, and put a new bearing back on.
