I thought it was Gary's voice. Sorry...
I will be at AJ's today to talk to them about dumping the Giant's bearings and see if they can order me the Enduro ones. If they won't, I'll let them put on the Giant ones since they should be under warranty since I put them on 3 months ago. They are really cheap looking and I wish Giant would make a recall on them. It only takes a spec of dirt for the ball bearings to turn into dust. If AJ's won't deal with Enduro, I am still going to order them and go to another LBS to do it. I wish I had a press tool to put the bearings myself. Thank you very much for the tip! I am glad I am not the only Giant owner with this issue.
If anyone on this board has a press tool and knows how to put on and take off suspension bearings, I am willing to pay you some money. At least buy you a beer or something.... Drop me a line.
For those who may be interested on this. I have a 2005 Giant Reign with the Maestro suspension. There seems to be an issue with the 2005 and 2006 Maestro suspension bearings. They don't seem to take in dirt well. You have to keep them very clean and repack with grease often. Or your rig will be making cracking noises all over the trail.... Same with the Trance bike model for the same years.
