    New question here. GT Custom 6061 Bearings needed

    Hi Guys

    My lower frame bearing ( the one nearest to the crank ) has some wear in it, I'm from the UK but have no idea where I could find a replacement...I've tried typing GT Custom 6061 into Ebay, Google and it's coming up blank...anyone know if I've got the right name for my frame or are parts impossible to obtain for this bike ?

    Thanks Lucky

    Take your bike apart, and remove the offending bearing. Take the bearing to your local bearing supply house and have them match one up. Install the new bearing(s) into your bike and ride off happy. Bearing supply stores are plentiful and typically not difficult to find. This will be much easier than trying to research what bearing may or may not have come on your bike.

    your bike is a GT LTS(?)...you can get replacement bushings on ebay....Im not too sure if you can get the exact ones you need, but I've seen many kits for sale for the GT LTS frames/bikes.
