Re: Motobecane front wheel bearing upgrade

If the bearing fit in snug i'd say it's fine.

If you wanted to get REAL crazy you could assembly with some Loctite 640.

Re: Motobecane front wheel bearing upgrade

I find it interesting that shims are needed at all .

Why not find bearing that fit without shims ?

IDK , maybe too expensive ?

Re: Motobecane front wheel bearing upgrade

It's just an oddball size. The ID clearance needed for the axle limits the options available. I checked SAE and metric sizes but this was the closest one I could find. Plus it's already been done.

Not sure what I'm going to do about replacing the tapered nuts for the cup bearings. Needs to be flat and only touch the inner race. Probably going to need to push the bearings out flush with the rim. Work that out when I do the spacer for inside the rim.
