SOURCE: Trek 800 sport needs crank bearings, how to

This isn't Bike Repair 101-level stuff. Take it to a reputable bike shop and have them teach you while they do it. If they're cartridge bearings it's fairly simple. Next time, you can handle it. Be advised, crankset removal tools are specialized and expensive for the casual bike owner who would use them only once every few years..

Headset required


It is actually a pretty conventional 1 1/8" threadless headset. A Trek dealer would identify it properly - but we replaced several of them with a Cane Creek S-2 or S-3 when necessary. These would be excellent choices. It is possible you may only need to replace the bearings and not the entire headset. Cane Creek would be a good choice here too.

I have a trek 3700 and the handles are tight but when you move them twords you they move not the handles but the wheels and the forks, i tried to tighten the nut on thr middle of the ston but it is tight...


That center screw is for SETTING the adjustment on the bearings BUT it wont move anything once the side screws are tight. If you cranked too much on the center screw you could do damage to the device which holds it in.


You should Google this term "threadless stem adjustment" for many vids and tutorials on how it works and how it adjusts. Your life could depend on your understanding it.

What kind of headset do i need for a 2011 felt q520. Have a cane creek on an old trek and thought I would switch them over, but the felt head tube seems to be a little bit wider in diamater.


Your Felt q520 uses a Semi-Integrated 1 1/8 inch headset. These headsets are known under various names such as zero-stack and low-profile. The cane creek on your old trek is most likely a conventional threadless headset. The standards are not compatible.

Please purchase a semi-integrated 1 1/8 inch headset and have a bike shop install it for you as pressing the cups into and out of the frame requires special tools and if done improperly can destroy the frame.

How do I ad a spacer to extend the neck heighth on my Trek 7.6


Modern bicycle stems use the threadless headset system that is usually modified for proper fit (height & reach) once using a stem of suitable reach, angle and length and then tweaking it with spacers. The length of the steerer tube on which they mount can be shortened and cut to size but it can't be lengthened.

A new stem with a higher 'rise' might work for you.

Cannot fit to my Trek 820 due to


You have to use a different fork. There are three standard steering tube sizes: 1"; 1.125"; 1.5". The 1" is found on budget bikes, older bikes and some cruiser/hybrid bikes. 1.125" is the most common size and is also usable on 1.5" head tubed bikes using reducing headsets. 1.5" is found on heavy-duty mountain bikes and some carbon fiber road bikes, although its use is increasing in popularity.
The point is, you can sometimes convert down, but never up. You have to source a different fork.

Sorry, mate
