I recently had my LBS replace the bearings on my 2009 Reign using an enduro bearing kit from RWC. After my first ride on the new bearings, I noticed the drive side bolt that goes through the bearings on the top of the rear triangle scrapped against my seat tube.

It seems that the bolts on both sides on top of the rear triangle stick out of the frame more than they used to. I brought it back the shop and they placed a washer over the one side and two washers on the side that scraped the frame. I really hate how the washers look.

I don't know if the replacement bearings are thinner than the originals.

Has anyone else had an issue like this? Is it possible my rear triangle need to be aligned?
