Take it apart and feel if they’re smooth or notchy. If smooth, regrease and reuse. If notchy, replace any either way, put Loctite on your bolt threads.

I have heard of this happening. The recommendation given to me was to use carbon paste on the shoulders of the bolts (where they go into the carbon triangle). I did that on mine and have not had a single one of them come loose.

A hint for notchy bearings, as long as there is no axial movement of the inner race relative to the outer, it's not dead, just dry grease on the races.

Use a scalpel blade to gently prise the rubber seals out of the bearing (slide it gently under the inner lip and it it should pop out), drop the bearing in a jar of alcohol/solvent for a few hours to soften the dry grease. Check it every so often and forcibly run the bearing round till it comes free, once it's completely free, leave to dry, run a spot of light oil around it and then pack the balls completely with a good thick grease, replace seals and refit.

Ball races are intended to high speed rotational movement, not the small angular deflection that suspension pivots experience as such are only packed with a small amount of grease which dries up on the bearing tracks. When I got my 5.5evp I replaced all the shot bearings and packed them with grease as above, I now have 5 years of usage from one set of bearings without any maintenance and they're fine.

I recently ressurected my 16 year old black spire headset in a similar fashion, some water had got in there, soaked it in some phosphric acid cleaner to eat the rust, rinsed off in alcohol and it's come up just fine.

My Carbine as it now currently stands.

Took a break to eat lunch while riding at Deer Valley and decided to take a picture.

Hello all,
I have an Intense M9. The fork looks like it may need replacing, but just wondering if there is any way of getting this bike to take 27.5 wheels. Has anyone had any experience in getting the G3 dropouts that are suitable for 27.5?

I have an 26” 2014 Uzzi with G3 dropouts and I currently have 2.8 tires on 26+ wheels on it, which are 27.5 in diameter and they fit with plenty of clearance front and back. I’m using a 2018 26” Fox 36 fork with 180mm travel, so a 27.5 fork not necessary. Here’s a link to my Vital bike check for pics. The G3 is in the rear, slack setting.
