Why Nylon Bushings are a Good Choice for the Bicycle Industry

Posted On May 13, 2016


Reinforced Nylon Bushing Option

Plain bearings in bicycle applications get subjected to a good amount of abuse, from high shock loads as the rider makes their way over uneven terrain, to potentially high speeds as some bikes can reach speeds in excess of 70 mph.  Then there are the issues of environmental contaminants, namely water, mud, sand, and other debris.  That means that cleaning is required, often in the form of steam.  It takes a special type of bushing to stand up under these types of rigors.  One of the options to consider is reinforced nylon.

Polymer Rear Hub Bushings: Wear Resistant Self-Lubricating Bushings for the Bicycle Industry

Posted On May 06, 2016


INTRODUCTION:

There are a variety of places where you can find composite bushings in a bicycle, including the headset, pedals, brake lever, front and back derailleurs, and the rear suspension, just to name a few.  In this article, we are going to look at the bushings used in rear hubs.

Many people wrongly assume that a polymer rear hub bushing, instead of a metal one, is a cheap substitution made by hub manufacturers.  Nothing could be further from the truth!  Let’s talk about how to select a proper material for a rear hub polymer bushing that will far outshine its metallic counterparts.

Here are some other great articles on polymer bushiings from the Advanced EMC Technologies Blog:
