Updated: Santa Cruz Bearing Tools Kit Range

Posted by Jim MacPhail on

We've updated our range of Santa Cruz bearing tool kits to cover all the latest models, including the new Nomad 5 and the Heckler and Bullit e-bikes! Santa Cruz have always been good at standardising their bearings and that trend continues - every bike that they have made in the last decade has used some combination of the same two bearing sizes for it's rear suspension pivots, meaning that there's a tonne of cross-compatibility between our different SC kits.   Interestingly, SC started moving from the angular contact 7900/7902 to the normal radial 6900/6902 version of their bearings a few years ago.  Though essentially identical...

Posted by Jim MacPhail on

A slightly different post this time; rather than introducing some new tool that we’ve added to our range, I thought I’d share a few pictures of a project that has robbed me of much of the time that should have been spent riding this summer! This is the second front triangle that I have built, and the first time that I have attempted fillet brazing.  The tubes are 4130 straight gauge steel. The goals of this build were:  Reach of 515mm Head angle of 65deg Uber-steep seat angle (85deg!) Chainstay of 445mm The rear triangle and linkage are from a Specialized Enduro 29. ...
