Bearing question
#1
Hi guys, I have a 2001 Gary Fisher Marlin. I took off the stem on my bike and didn't realize as the fork was loose the bearing fell out and broke. I'm not sure what size they are and the orientation it is suppose to be. The top bearing is still there. All i know is the bearing is in a retainer that is all. Any help would be amazing. Thanks

Sounds like 1/8" bearings, I would advise buying them loose rather than in a cage and fit them with a good quality bearing grease. Pop your bike up to your local bike shop, they should be able to supply the parts.
