I'm a 4%er

Final drive bearing failed and vibrated the whole bike. rebuilt the final and the bike rides smoother than ever, Also noticed something strange. No More squeaky rear brake... could the two be related? just thought I'd share. the bike had two rebuilds since it was new. I noticed that the replacement bearing I put in was made in Germany. the one I took out was made in France. I wonder if that has anything to do with anything..

Do you think the bearing surrendered?
