Hello and welcome to my thread.
Come in you know you want to and make yourselves at home, you know you always do anyway.
Please bare one thing in mind not reading and not responding is two different things.
Heard a lot of arguments on hear about bearings.
Heard a lot of arguments on hear about nothing.
Cheap sh1t or performance, pregreased or not.
Should you remove the seals and won't that damage the bearings.
Should they slightly resist movement or should they rotate as freely as possible.
I argue that performance bearings if you can get them at the right prices are the better option and that all bearings in mountain bike applications should be caged and fully 100% pregreased.
I do not believe that full compliment bearings should be used, even though they are better at dealing with heavier loads over Chinese bearings.
Let's be hearing you then, you know you can't resist posting. On the other hand since I just wrote that you might feel the over whelming urge not to post.
Should we run budget / generic or performance bearings in our bikes.
What do you run and why?
