I have never had to replace any pivots or bearings. A buddy of mine just replaced his bearings (or bushings, can't remember which) on his superlight after riding it for three seasons. Some frames do go through bearings worse than others though. For example a lot of people that had the blur classics had to replace them once or twice a season.
