The Joy of Maintenance // How to replace your frame bearings*

If there’s a company that knows how to make entertaining, educational how-to videos better than anyone, it’s Transition. They also make you feel a lil dirty…

In what should be the dreariest vid on the internet, the Transition crew have made the simple process of replacing your frame bearings into a 70’s inspired masterpiece. While it’s focussed on Transition’s trunnion shock’d models, the steps are pretty similar to most four-bar linkage rear ends out there. As always, your local bike shop has your back if you didn’t read the instructions and only go for it if you have the tools, patience and probably better yet, some kinda mechanical aptitude!
