    Help.. Lost my ball bearings from pedal.

    Hey guys,

    Im making a fixie, but as i was cleaning my bottom bracket, i had to remove my pedals.

    All my ball bearings went everywhere and i lost a bunch.

    Anyone know where i can get the acutal balls for ball bearings?

    Ive search on google, bu they only have the actual bearing in a set, not just the balls.


    thansk!

    Anywhere, ball bearings are all standardized sizes and if you have one it can be measured easily. Just go to a good bike shop, maybe an auto shop, etc.

    Swap spindles for left hand drive, to overhaul the grease, maybe just for experimenting. He has valid reasons and loosing bearings is no biggie.

    Take one of the ones you have left to your local bike shop and tell them you need some more.
