    Get the 110 series bearings, the future you will be glad you did.

    Default Only the upper?

    I was under the impression only the top on the 110 was stainless

    Does 110 still refer to the warranty period in years?

    +110 for the 110. And yes, the warranty is still 110 years. $60 from MTB direct, steep for a bearing, but you get what you pay for,.

    Thanks guys, are the zs part numbers still what I look for in the other types as in 110 or enduro bearing? Not sure on what I need to order exactly

    Don't rely on the ZS numbers for new bearings. ZS (Zero-Stack) 44/56 headsets have cups pressed into the frame, which has 44/56mm bore diameter, with the bearings fitted in the cups. Different headsets can have different cup internal diameters, therefore different bearing diameters for the same frame diameter. The bearings should have printed on the outer shell the specific dimensions, eg. 40.8 x 30 x 8 45* x 45* or 45* x 36*. Match the new bearings to the numbers on the current ones.
    Just ride the bloody thing and enjoy yourself!

    I build wheels... :wink:
