Scicon Aerocomfort Road 2 wheel bearings

Postby Baalzamon » Fri Dec 07, 2018 2:03 pm

I was wondering why my bike bag was dragging. Inspected the wheels and found one wheel was missing the bearings. Having one spare wheel I've now replaced it, but I'm wondering can I salvage that other wheel with bearings missing by replacing them? If yes anyone know sizing?

Common problem. The wheels are not up to "baggage handler" standards. I replaced all 4 of my wheels with heavy duty replacements from Bunnings. Castors on the front and fixed wheels on the back makes it easier to wheel in airports.

Take one off and compare. Easiest way.

I like the idea of 2 x fixed ones though.

Semi-fixie !!!!

I went bigger and better than the originals. Just look through the options at Bunnings and discard anything with plastic parts. Go the full metal jacket.
I'd take a photo of mine except its lent out at the moment. I lend it to people when Im not using it.
Buying 2 fixed ones makes it heaps cheaper as the castors can be expensive.
