Hello

Ham fisted effort to clean and regrease by BB30 bearings has resulted in me breaking one of the plastic dustcaps. Does anyone know where I can buy replacements? My efforts on google haven't got me anywhere. Its the plastic cap I'm looking for rather than the bearing cover which fits under it.


I had one of them red bikes but I don't any more. Sad face.

    I think you may struggle unless someone (or a local bike shop) is willing to donate one to you when they change their bearings - they seem to come as a kit complete with bearings. Maybe if you should buy a new bearing kit and hold the bearings as spare until needed

    Thanks Paul

    If I can avoid replacing the bearings I'd be happier, as I believe you need a special tool to remove/replace the bearings.

    Do you, or anyone else know if this Race-Face X-Type Bearing Cap would fit? It looks the same as the part that broke...
