Has anyone localish got the parts we can borrow to get him going again!?

Why not take it to a local bike shop. The 3 bearings are all standard parts

Yes - but almost impossible to replace in the field and not that easy to replace even in the workshop!!

At an MT meet MoscowJohn's broken bearings were changed by Rustybike in field conditions, I was with him when he did it.

I've changed them myself at home with no special tools just a long drift and hammer. Hence , I know exactly how difficult the job is. Taking the carrier to a local bike shop where they would have suitable tools and expertise seems the obvious answer.

I note from other sources that his crush drive is also fubar. Hence he has a further problem, not mentioned here

Thanks all, yes cush drive required also.

Big thanks to Dave Deadgrass who offered drive up with the stuff, on his wedding anniversary!

Dave's now sending the bits to the hotel for tomorrow morning and I'll get a recovery truck to there.

So thanks for your help Dave, all should be sorted in the morning. Cheers!

Stu :D
