The Driver 8 is a wicked tough bike and the suspension is built to handle all the beatings that you and your favorite trails can dish out. Yet even with the doubled lower pivot bearings, there's a limit to what they can handle before needing replacement, and the folks at Santa Cruz know this. So one of the coolest things Santa Cruz does is to offer a lifetime bearing warranty to the original owner.
While you must cover the cost to get your bearings to Santa Cruz, they will pay to send replacement bearings to you. However, Santa Cruz Bicycles will not be liable for any labor costs involved in swapping out the bearings. If you want to get your new bearings fast, include a description of your frame (size, model and serial number) and how long you've had your bearings.
So why are we telling you this, and why do we sell bearings? We suggest that you buy a bearing kit in advance to avoid down time, then send in the old bearings to start the cycle. That way, you get to keep riding while the bearings are in the mail.
The Santa Cruz Driver 8 Bearing Kit includes:
- 4 -- Enduro 7902Z MAX bearings
- 4 -- Enduro 7902 (no seals/shields) MAX bearings
- 4 -- Enduro 6902LLUMAX bearings
