Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by works like it should does what you would expect from a bearing but i ordered it expecting it to be the same as my other bearing because in the picture the bearing has 872 printed on it but received one with 871 printed on it not sure if i got sent the wrong thing or just the wrong picture is used. can't fault the bearing if it is the right one you need 07 September 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by If you own Orbit MX, you need two XLII upper bearings! I've got Orbit MX and it uses two identical bearings, so for a full bearing replacement two Orbit XLII upper bearings are needed, the Orbit XLII lower bearing doesn't fit. These are quite adequately sealed (regular bearings). The headset's seals are also quite important, besides the bearings. If dirt/mud gets onto the bearing, it forms a grinding paste and eventually will wear the seals down, then it will enter and kill the bearings. I've had my Orbit MX headset for 4 years and the bearings are still good. The seals (this is rubber, not plastic) can indeed be removed carefully with a small tip screwdriver for cleaning/regrease, but usually the point of cartridge/sealed bearings is their easy replacement. If you're on a really tight budget and your bearings are not yet shot, cleaning/regrease might make some sense. 10 July 2011

Is this bearing suitable for FSA Orbit MX

My bearing have the red seal, and I think they are 5 years old. I can't read the information on the side of the bearing. The FSA website states the Orbit MX is an Angular contact bearing!

These bearings have 36°x36°Angular Contact Bearings but are 44mm In diameter for a Semi-Integrated headset; where as the Orbit MX has a 34mm diameter and is classed as a Traditional headset..

These bearings are not compatible.

Do I order the upper or lower bearing?

My headset (FSA ACB) has the 872# bearings (36*36 1-1/8") on both top and bottom. I saw someone said that an 871# bearing arrived when they ordered this.

Could you please confirm how I order two 872# bearings with the same markings (36*36 1-1/8") that is displayed on your website.

I own a 2012 Trek Fuel EX9. According to the Trek website, my headset is listed as an FSA NO.57E, E2, ACB sealed bearings - Are these bearings a direct replacement?

Many thanks.

Answer: 
No, unfortunately not. These bearings are for a 44mm Semi-Integrated headset where as the No.57 has a 44mm Upper cup and 56mm Lower cup making the fitting impossible.
