    New question here. Race Face BB bearing size (taperlock)?

    Anyone know the bearing size on the Race face square taper BB's? Winter riding has finally caught up w/ the ol' 1x1.

    Smile bearing size

    if i remember correct, race face uses an Enduro brand "6903" bearing. it should have a 17mm inside diameter and a 30mm outside diameter and a 7mm width. it should clearly say 6903 on the bearing rubber seal.

    i used to have a taperlock many moons ago, and it blew up because they use the "el cheapo" enduro bearings. i have become spoiled after working at Phil Wood, so i am biased to always having the best quality bearings in all of my bike components.

    order some "orange seal" 6903's from Phil direct, they are the best gosh darn bearing you can get. strongest material and strongest seals. they will last for many years longer than any other bearing.
