    Go to an industrial bearing shop. Ask for SKF bearings. Cheaper and better quality than Enduro Bearings. All bicycle brands use standard meassures for bearings, so it will be cheaper for you if you buy bearings in a bearing shop.

    I hope these is useful for you

    no because you would need to change the bushing instead.

    Because people like kiwirider get sucked into it. Having been stuck in NZ for a year I can only have sympathy for him - poor bugger!

    There are only a few trolls like him, who spend more time flaming on forums than actually riding.

    Unfortunately I live in London and have to put up with Kiwi arrogance most days, at least the Visa's have been restricted now! Cos they ain't welcome anymore!

    Here some nice posting on another forum by our grown-up friend kiwirider. Some irony in his post I think. I love the 'You add nothing bit'. Plus the bit about himself at the end. 'as no one else will give 'me' the time of day in 'real life'

    But it's pretty obvious that you need this forum, as no one else will give you the time of day in 'real life'.

    ... and if we just ... Buyer's remorse maybe?

    I too am fascinated by this so-called "rivalry" from the Turner folks.
    No urge on MY part to waste time kibitzing on the Turner forum, when I could be out riding or maybe discussing some interesting subjects or learning something.

    The only thing I can figure out is that SOME of the Turner folks have such incredible buyers remorse, that they feel the need to try to make what they REALLY wanted SEEM bad. I think we should give the poor blokes a break. Sorta sad really.

    I can relate because I owned a bike that I HATED for a few years. What a costly boat anchor! It was a Specialized Epic in my case. But at least I figured out I needed to cut my losses and sell it to someone who actually did like it and got myself a bike that would make me happy, which happened to be an Ellsworth Epi. Never had to drop so low as to waste my time trash talking everything else to try to make everything else seem as bad as what I had.

    Now I just grin a lot when I ride. Still no urge to check out the Turner forum........

    Sorry for the negative posts guys - haven't been on my bikes for a while. Need to ride, need to ride....

    In all seriousness, I've been torn between buying an Epiphany or a 5 Spot for a while now. Hence me checking out the Els forum for action, pics etc.

    Find the bike that makes you smile the most when you ride it.
    Buy it.
    Ride it.
    Don't worry about what others ride, and be glad not everyone likes the same bike or else there would be a massive shortage(and higher prices) of that bike and you would just be riding what everyone else is riding.

    Keep it simple and enjoy life when you can.

    It's like a Chevy/Ford thing. On the grand scale of automobile design, Ford and Chevy trucks are as close as you can get. But the more similar two things are, the more vocal each of their fans become. Though I do think it would be better if Ellsworth used a bushing at the back pivot, like Titus.

    But seriously, back to the original post. Does anyone have good instuctions for replacing bearings? One of tje back pivots on my Moment is notchy.

    Should be a simple job using the 5$ bearing puller from Enduro Fork Seals: http://www.enduroforkseals.com/id61.html

    You can also get the bearings from them: http://www.enduroforkseals.com/id55.html
