Silver balls in seatpost
#1
Hi, there,
I have a Hercules bike and when I tried to adjust the seat, 12 small iron balls fell out. I do not know how to put them back.
Anyone can help?
Thanks!

My guess is that they are bearings from the bottom bracket that wound up in the seat tube when the bike was once turned upside down. How does the pedal axle feel? Rough?

Lol,
Very good point !!! Had a couple in a handle bar stem once and never did figure out how they got there!?!?! Probably a kid playing around or something.
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!
