Pivot bearings - which??

Hi all. Replacing all my pivot bearings on my Boardman FS Pro (2016). Despite extensive web searching, all I’ve found re spec for them is an old post on singletrack.com, suggesting 6902, 6901 and 6900. Contacted Boardman, they don’t know, contacted Halfords, same surprisingly! Just want to order the right ones prior to getting the old ones out, but it’s a little sketchy basing spec on just an old web post alone. Any advice anyone?

    Remove the pivot bolts and take the numbers off the bearing seals.

    As above tbh. Some fleebay sellers might do listings specific to your bike. Worth a search.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Do not worry! Remove the bearings and measure them and/or read off any code that you can see written anywhere on them. Then got to Trail Vision Bearings
    https://trailvision.co.uk/collections/all-bike-bearings

    They have very helpful web pages that will help you to determine with confidence which bearings you need. If all else fails you can phone them. Place your order and get the bearings within less than two days (that's what happened to me).

    Their bearings are all designed for the wet and muddy environment that is the UK bike scene. Their prices are competitive. Buy with confidence.
