Can I replace my headsets bearings without replacing the entire headset?
In most cases yes, especially if your headset uses sealed cartridge bearings. The first step to finding out if your bearings can be replaced is by identifying the model of the headset. Some types of headsets won’t accept replacement bearings.
How do I know which type of headset bearing I need?
Compare the two cartridge bearings and you will notice the differences in the length of the angled and straight sections. These bearings are available in a number of configurations, so hang on to your originals to ensure you can always get a good match for your bearings.
