    '02 El Fuego - Bearing Upgrade?

    I have a 2002 El Fuego, still holding up great.

    Just had all my bushings (yes all) replaced. Cost about $70 which seems quite reasonable.

    By the look of it, the main pivot should be upgradeable to bearing. I asked Ventena about this but they did not reply.

    Any thoughts?

    I actually e-mailed them a couple of months ago before the Interbike Show started.

    Are you asking if it can be done?

    The answer is yes. Requires a whole new rear triangle though. As the bushing parts cannot be retrofited to bearings.
