    Replacement parts

    Hello,

    First a little background. Coming form the motorcycle world i know there are several websites that carry exploded views of all motorcycles, and every single OEM part, so you can order every nut, or bolt, or gasket or anything you like from the OEM.

    Is there something like that for bicycles too?
    I am looking for the rubber seal for the pedal bearings on my Trek Fx.
    If there are no websites like this, is it all standard sized and i could find something at my LBS?


    Thanks

    Motorcycle parts tend to be more brand/model specific than bike parts. If you need a new crankset,bottombracket,or headset,you've got a wide range to choose from. In fact,most bikes are a collection of parts hung onto a frame made by the manufacturer,and in most cases the frame was contracted out as well.

    What pedals are they? For a seal for yours,check with the pedal brand(Wellgo,MKS,Dimension). If you have the seal for the other pedal,and it's just an o-ring,then you could prolly find it at a decent hardware store. And all adult bikes use 9/16" pedals.

    I appreciate it.
    I will check what brand they are.
    I know for sure it is not just a regular o ring, it actually it is still there but it is broken so it can easily come off when riding.

    Just give a call to where you bought the Bike or another Trek dealer, they service the bikes and have the replacement parts since they are certified Trek dealers. You could also send an email to Trek's customer support.

    Good luck finding parts for bike components. Heck, good luck finding replacement fork for a brand new bike in original color or design from brand dealer... It's not easy at best.

    Ive been using http://loosescrews.com/ for about 20 years now. They stock Shimano and Campy bits

    Or go scrounging for used parts. OEM generic parts are hard to find spares for. Id try a hardware store for generic O rings

    You can try a Bike COOP/Kitchen if you have some in
    your area. The one in my area(Recycle a Bicycle NY)
    has so much bike parts; they don't know what to do
    with them.

    I know what your looking for and this is about the best I have came up with so far! Shimano shows a complete breakdown of their components here with part numbers to boot.

    Can anyone tell me the best place to get parts for bikes from the big box stores. Like Wal-mart, Target and Canadian Tire.
