I finally tracked down an annoying drivetrain click to my Time ATAC XS pedals. There was noticeable play between the pedal body and axle so I took them apart last night. The axle rides on an outboard sealed bearing and an inboard sleeve bearing. The sealed bearing was in good shape but the sleeve bearing had worn such that the I.D. was about 10.3mm (should be 10.0mm I imagine) probably due to lack of lubrication. It appears to be made of plastic, maybe Teflon? Anyone know where to get replacements? I looked on McMaster Carr and various other sites and found no sleeve bearings (of any material) that were long enough (the bearing measurements should be: I.D.=10mm, O.D.=14mm, L=25mm). Would an oilite bronze sleeve bearing last longer than stock?

check out vxb or enduro or bearing bargains on ebay.
None of them had the proper size but...

You could always stack a couple sleeve bearings back to back.
...that just might work.

I could not find a source for Igus iglide bearings, though they look like the right material. Anyone know where to get them?

Get them from IGUS, call there parts department and order some. THey are located in Rhode Island. If you can find the correct size, get them in a material called L280 if they are available. L280 lasts like crazy. Self lubricating. It's used in the flange bushing pivots of the dropout for GIANT NRS frames (200)-2003).

Excellent! Thanks for the tip.

Update on this for anyone who wants to re-build their ATACs:

The bushing in question is actually 10mm x14mm x16mm (NOT 25mm as I indicated above--don't know what I was smokin' when I measured that). You can get them and any other parts you might need from Bikeparts.com for $7 apiece or you can get them from Igus for about $1.70 apiece. The model number is JSM-1014-16. I ordered a bunch so I have enough to keep my ATACs serviceable for about ten years.

Hey rs3o,

I'm in the process of rebuilding my ATAC's right now - thanks for the info!! One question though. There are 2 bushings in each of my pedals (new version ATAC XS) - the inboard bushing looks like the one you referenced above. Between that bushing and the cartridge bearing there is a conical shaped bushing. Did you find that one at Igus as well?

Thanks,

Dan
