Great thread.
Is there an overview of all the parts needed, and what you have used?

I'll see if I can put together a comprehensive list of parts soon! I don't get anytime to play with bikes at the moment, lack of space and even less time.....may be a while before I can let rip and get it apart to check it over which is when ill do a parts list.

Bump for this as 3 years later i figured it might be time to replace my bearings and i couldn't remember the sizes i had fitted, bike still runs great, never had an issue with my rear bearing conversion :D

Ive worn out my front fork though :D

Finished checking my bearing conversion this afternoon, i have done a lot of miles on this now since i fitted them a good few years ago.

The only ones that were worn were the ones at the top of the seat stay, the rest are in such good condition that i have left the old ones in place.

Perfect :D
