Winter service for the planet x (January 28th 2013)

A winter tip my bearings have started to go plenty of rust coloured water on the forks, so best get some on order for the spring service

I’ve had the forks out today and swopped top and bottom over and re-greased the rusty bearing the inner part (steel) comes away so you have access to the bearing race, grease and should be ok for a few hundred miles or till the summer

stuff you need is here (headset spares) headset finder HERE 

New icetool GXP bottom bracket TOOL arrived mid week 6th March so took the BB apart 1st service since new 11 months old, a little water inside nothing major
