New: Take part in the January Giveaway for a Trifox Carbon MTB Riser Handlebar


Raleigh burner original handlebars ball bearings
#1
I built a Raleigh burner and the handle bars still move and squeak and I think it might be the ball bearings but I don't know what size ball bearing I need any help?

take them out and measure them. You will need calipers or a mic to measure them.

Or take one down to a bike store or a hardware store and they have neat hole measures that they fit the bearings through. Than they can sell you the right bearings. Most likely 1/4".........you did use a nice thick waterproof grease as used in cars or boat trailers.
Never Give Up!!!
