Cube Stereo 2010 swing arm bearings

Postby browny584 » Fri Jan 04, 2013 13:36 pm

Bought myself a s/h cube stereo told it is a 2010 model a few months ago, noticed a bit of movement/play in the swinging arm linkage bottom of seatpost above bb, the rest of the bearings/bushes seem fine.
Stripped it down but cant find any suppliers with a bearing kit that looks similar, they appear to be needle bearings press fit onto the swing arm.
Any ideas from anyone with similar for a supplier?
help greatly appreciated

The only thing I know of is the replacement kit from Cube. This includes all the bearing for the linkage and all the bolts, but retails at £65

As above, Cube sell the bearings and bolts for the Trail-Control (Stereo, Fritzz, Sting) bikes in 2 or 3 different kits (so it's one kit for the main pivot, one for the linkage, etc, and each one is expensive). Some bearings are standard sizes and some aren't. Any Cube dealer should be able to order them for you.

Be very careful with the bolts as some are made of cheese, and, again, you have to buy a whole kit just to replace one.

A friend bought his Fritzz bearings here (be warned (!), their customer-service wasn't exactly 'good', but he got it in the end): http://www.surosa.co.uk/217/cube_spares.aspx
