Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Ok i am stumped. Superbe bearing size

I need to replace the bearings in a pair of Superbe pedals i just got, and after like 2

hours of research and measuring i am way beyond ****ing confused. This shouldn't

be this ****ing hard


www.bikepro.com/ lists the bearings as being 698 for the outer which is 8x19x6

The bearings that i took out measure 9x20x6. Ok so that is a 699 no big deal....

The inner bearing is listed as a 6800 which is 10x19x5. The bearings I have are

11x20x7, 11mm bearings don't exists AFAIK. I can find 10x19x7 but the spindle is a

tight fit in the 11mm bearings i have. I am so ****ing confused maybe i am just

****ing dumb but can somebody please give me a definitive answer on what size

bearings I need? Pretty please?

i think it's just that some of your measurements are off.. are you using precise calipers ?
when i took apart my xc pro pedals (same spindle & body) i got:

698 (8 19 6) [i know that this one is right because i could read the number on it, you should check too]
and
63800 (10 19 7)

pm me if you maybe want to split a bearing order
