    So I was trying to remove my rear shock to clean and re-grease and ended up destroying the bearings, and not even removing my shock in the process. I didn't realize there was an inner bolt that connected to the outer bolt. #facepalm

    Here is a screenshot showing the bearings I need. Would Rock'N'Road carry these?

    Thanks.

    I doubt Neighborhood Cyclery has them in stock, but you could call them and find out.

    Any Special Ed dealer should carry or can get that part.

    Thanks guys. I bought it used, and the guy had purchased it from Rock'N'Road in Anaheim Hills.

    What other shops carry the big S around the north OC area?

    I’m 99.44% certain these are standard bearings you can get on the inter webs. At least that’s how I got the bearings for my old stump jumper. Or there’s likely a bearing distributor/Fastenal in an industrial park near you.

    Get the dimensions and order from the happiest place on earth:

    I agree with @tick I am sue you can get some very high quality bearings on your own. I got a set from The Path when I was hunting. They had a variety of standard sizes. Of course Specialized being Specialized, they probably spec'd a proprietary size on the bearing!

    Yeah, I work for a Specialized dealer but I would recommend you just source your own locally. Sometimes you can find the same size bearing in a higher grade.
    Pick up an extra set for next time.

    Thanks. There is a Fastenal near me. I’ll see if I can find the dimensions on a Specialized spec sheet online somewhere.

    Just see if you can read the letters and numbers off the side of the bearing. Or take one with you to Fastenal

    Here is a picture of my bike, sans the bearings that I mangled. Trying to find the actual size online at the moment.

    Here is what I found on Fastenal’s site, peep the price! Looks like Jenson has them for $6 or so.

    I checked the price at McMaster-Carr, jenson has a better deal! ($8 @ McMaster)

    Do you have a way to press out the rest of the bearing?

    Funny thing is, I’ve only ever had to replace suspension bearings in Specialized bikes. Do the two companies in Taiwan that actually make all the bikes give the brands a range of options? I realize I’m extrapolating from a very small sample.

    Thanks for also looking them up. I think I’ll just order from Jenson.

    Regarding the removal of the residual bearing rings, I don’t have s press. Anyone have suggestions?

    I have a set of those at home, thought about using them but wasn't quite sure if they'd do the job. Will give it a shot tonight.

    You can use a bolt, nut, and washers. It might take a bit of looking to find a washer that fits right.

    My dad turned up a bearing press kit for me on his lathe. Everyone needs machine tools in the family.
