    Shimano 105 headset cartridge bearings

    I need to replace the cartridge bearings in my 105 headset. Where would be a good place to find replacements? Thanks

    I would start with your LBS, then check Harris Cyclery you can access the QBP catalog through them. Ebikestop might have them also.

    I don't have a lbs. yeah I know it's not really c&v but it's what came on my late 80's cannondale sr 600. It's the only part that's not campy, but it's a bad weather bike so I do t want to replace the whole headset.

    Just take them to a bearing supply house and have them matched. I bet I live in a more podunk town then you and we still have a bearing supply house.

    These aren't the kind of bearing that a bearing house would have.

    It's proprietary Shimano part, interchangeable with (actually the same bearing) Ultegra, LX and XT.

    Bike Tools Etc. used to carry them at a really reasonable price but I just checked and they only seem to have the 1 1/8" size now.

    Should have bought some while I had the chance!
