    bearing issues on 5.5 ?

    thinking of buying a used 5.5. I sometimes read about problems with the bearings on this frame. also read about some frames being misaligned. Are these common problems with the 5.5 ? any specific production year/batch ?

    thanks

    Peter-
    Up near the top of the page is the mtbr google search. Type in 5.5, bearings, and tons of really helpful info will be at your fingertips. Good luck!

    p.s.- good bike, no issues yet with anything. love more testing time though!
    I'd hit it, but I bruise like a peach.
