Winter is here. Time to change the bearings on my Tues AL from 2016. All good to get them direct from YT? Better ones out there?

I usually go with enduro bearings from real world cycling. They have kits for most bikes and have one for the tues.

+1 for enduro bearings.

I use them in all my bikes and they are far superior to oem bearings. Just get the Enduro Max version, made especially for suspension pivots.

Hi All-
Looking at buying a TUES Carbon 27.5 and stuck on size. I'm 6-0 but long torsoed (30" inseam) so I'm thinking the XL would be good. The reach goes from 452 to 474 so it's a considerable jump. Any thoughts? - Thanks

I’m same size as you. I would go L if you just ride park. An XL if you race.
I have large and love it in the park, but tried racing in masters this year and wish I had an XL.

Hey people,
Has anyone had a problem with the LG1 Cassete Xdrive on the E13 wheel? The bearings in the cartridge are worn, but the cartridge itself is in good condition. This is an integrated version of the LG1 cartridge, so there is no chance to remove bearings from the cartridge.
Is there any chance to replace the cassette with sram but will remain on the e13 hub ?

With a tall torso I would opt for XL too.

But just curious: with 'riding park' you only mean wide open jumplines? As most DH competition tracks here are just a subset of the available tracks in the park with more off natural flow and features.
And here most parks have just a limited amount of the types of lines, so I actually don't know anyone who only rides the jumplines, but doesn't ride any actual DH tracks. (or visa versa).
Except the people that are still progressing and are not ready for black DH tracks, but most are at least aspiring to ride those.

Because I don't think it matters much if you doing actual timed racing, or just going down by yourself or with buddies to just go fast: in both cases you want to have the best fitting bike for DH-tracks.

I'm 6'1" XL 27.5 seems spot on for me.
