    Chris King seals and bearing repair for Bottom bracket 68/73mm 24mm

    Is this fixable. Where can I buy the outside seal and bearings for one side.

    Chris King Snap Ring and Seal Kit (for Threaded BB or PF24 BB) - Bromley Bike Company

    Found this but I need to find one in the US

    Also I need this

    Seems very pricey for one side bearing?

    Anything CK is pricey. I would order from CK. They sell parts direct.

    Here it is in the U.S. Order the 1" version -- it fits King 24mm BB bearings. I know because I just replaced both of mine.

    I'm not confident but I think that's a hub bearing and a ceramic one at that. Are you looking to replace your BB bearing? I think that's a different bearing and I believe they're available in steel which I expect would be cheaper.

    I couldn't find any other King bearings on Universal Cycle's site. But if you give them a call, they'll help you. So will King.

    Yepper, that's a ceramic hub bearing. CK manufactures their own bearings and will set you up with what you need.

    Here's US distributor. They're higher in price (often for stuff) but their customer support has been great over the years.

    Out of curiosity, I compared a few prices from your link with the CK website. From what I saw, the prices are nearly identical. For the same price, I would buy directly from CK.

    What does "toast" mean?

    What's your maintenance history?

    I bought the CK PF30 Limited Edition Sour Apple in KL Malaysia and had it installed by Bike Pro Malaysia Bike Shop...After installing the SRAM Eagle XO crank and 1 trail ride, the bearing on the non-drive side developed noise...i checked the bearings and found out that the white plastic seal on the bearing was potruding already ...tried inserting in back to no avail...had to buy another CK PF30 Silver ....

    hey guys I spent about a week soak it in pure alcohol iso. Cleaned it as well as I could what grease do you use that spins best? I only have the park tool grease that comes in a tube. Is that good enough or is there something better?

    There may or may not be better but in any case that grease will do just fine.

    Choice of grease can depend on several factors. If you're riding in wet conditions or go for extended periods in between maintenance and service, stick with any good water-proof grease like the Park PPL-1 PolyLube 1000. Plenty of high quality grease available everywhere. Don't think that it has to be a 'bicycle branded' grease. If your objective is reducing the coefficient of friction, consider a lighter grease like Buzzy's Slick Honey. The only possible consequence with using the lighter lubricants is possibly decreasing your bearing service intervals.

    Additionally, when packing bearings, exercise caution to avoid over-packing with too much grease. You won't do any harm if you do over-pack, you just create more (unnecessary) rotational resistance. This what I do not like about the CK Bearing injector. It packs the snot out of those bearings. That's a good thing if you do lot's of water crossings where water might create a bearing issue.
