    2011 Giant Trance X1 - Pivot Bearings part number?

    Hello,

    Does anyone that has happened to change their rear triangle suspension pivot bearings know the part numbers for the bearings I will need? I found 3 that are very notchy when I spin them with my finger, I might as well replace all of them.

    Thanks!

    I just took apart the rear and found the part numbers:

    6802 - 4x
    6900 - 4x
    6902 - 2x

    I picked up some locally, but I ruined 3 of them installing them, there goes like $17 . They did not go in perfectly straight and when I straightened it out and seated them, they became notchy, probably ruined the "race". So I removed them. I found them so much cheaper on eBay so I'm going to buy them there. Luckily I didn't ruin my frame installing them, and just the bearing, scared the crap out of me.

    Notchiness is normal with a small press-fit bearing. Install some full complement bearings, grease them up (mainly to leave no room for moisture) and leave them alone. Knocking them out or wonky pressing is a good way to flog out the housings...

    What are "full complement bearings"?

    I already ordered 3 replacement bearings. The 2RS versions, are the ones I ordered.
