2017 White GSA
I got two letters yesterday. One for my GSA and one for a bike I don't own.
No bearings seemed fine.He means the bearings, not the paint. The shaft removed from my bike looked the same as yours but the universal joints were eff'd. As I said earlier, visual inspection is meaningless. Gently pivot the u-joint. It should offer smooth operation. If you feel an stuttering in the movement the bearings are toast.
