> > DESCRIPTION:
This is a NEW cup and bearing set for a one-piece crank. It includes 2 cups, 2 bearings, right and left cones, lock nut, lock washer with a nib on it for the left side, and a plain washer to go under the cone on the right side. It is in the factory package.
The bearings are 9 balls. If your old bearings were 10 ball, you can put this set in your bicycle and it will work OK if your crank is 24 threads per inch AND if the cups are the right diameter to fit in your bicycle.
It is for cranks that have 24 threads per inch. It will fit most bicycles that have a 1-piece crank, but not all.
The diameter of the cup that goes into the bicycle frame is about 51.5 mm. So, the opening in your crank hanger should be about 51.5 mm . The cup goes into the hanger about 13.5 mm deep. If you put the inside lip of the cup on a flat surface and measured from the flange to the flat surface the distance would be about 13.5 mm.
You can measure the circumference of your old cup with a strip of paper and divide by 3.14 to get the diameter.
Additional information that could be useful if you do not already know it:
You can go to the Park Tool site to see pictures of how to put in crank bearings. http://www.parktool.com/blog/repair-help/one-piece-bottom-bracket-service

If you read the article on how to adjust bearings, notice that you must leave a little play (looseness) in the bearings before you tighten the lock nut because the lock nut will compress the bearing cone closer to the bearing and it will be too tight if there was not some looseness left in it before tightening the lock nut. Notice that the article says to tighten the adjusting cone until it is against the bearing lightly, then BACK OFF about one-fourth turn. That will often give the right amount of "play" in the bearings before you tighten the lock nut. After tightening the lock nut, turn the crank SLOWLY and LIGHTLY with your hand to see if there is any binding anywhere. If you come to a place where it binds, stop and loosen the adjusting cone slightly, then try it again.

> > Discounts on Combined Shipping:
The checkout will automatically give the correct amount for S&H if you are buying only ONE of any kind of item and nothing else.
The checkout cannot compute the discounts we give on shipping for Each Additional and for Combined Shipping. So if you are ordering more than one item of any kind from us that has a S&H charge, we will need to have Paypal send you an invoice for the correct amount. We will usually have Paypal send the invoice between 4:00 PM and 10:00 PM the same day you order the items, but sometimes is could be the next day before we could have Paypal send the invoice.
The S&H charge will be the full amount for ONE of the item that has the highest S&H charge for one of that item, and the reduced amount that is shown in our ADS for each of all the other different kinds of items that the customer is ordering. You may see an example of how to compute the discount on S&H for multiple purchases by clicking on "About" at the bottom of our ADS; or, see the example below:
Example of Combined Shipping Discount:
The customer buys
one of item "A" with S&H $4.00 and $0.01 each additional;
2 of item "B" with S&H of $4.25 and $0.50 each additional;
one of item "C" with S&H $4.25 and $0.75 each additional.
The total S&H charge would be: $4.25 + $0.01 + $0.50 + $0.50 = $5.26
