    remove bearing
    Get some digital vernier calipers

    Measure bearings Width Inner and outer

    Go to bearing shop give them the measurements

    Most bike stuff does use standard bearings but there are not always cheaper – eg Hope wheels ones are dearer from my local bearing shop than from Merlin

    How to guide with measurements on the side to enter data and get the bearing

    Might help of you say what it is for or from what bike otherwise it will be pick your size

    Possible use Igus bushes if there is some “slack” – think like the top cap on your Bottom Bracket or the bush in your shock
