    Just replacing the 30mm bearings on my wheels mfg bottom bracket.

    They’re stainless angular contact and hope bearings were the cheapest in stock. The seals are different a different colour on the hopes but still AC stainless.

    Which way round? Green seal outboard / black seal inboard? Or vice versa?

    Coloured seals outboard usually.. I remember it as “never black out!”.

    There should be a small chamfer on the outer race on the side which is supposed to be pressed in.
