Default are acer bearings as good as avid?

avid is out of the half the bearings i need and ready rollers wants 12$ to ship. Protek is fine but i can not find all the right sizes. all that is left is acer and i have heard mixed reviews. So are they good to go?

Acer makes some very nice bearings (only owned them once, but even the small ones would freewheel for a long time without being attached to anything). The unfortunate part of that is they come with a price to match

looks like tko is all that is left. The only steel bearings they have are non contact seals. Are these ok?

You should email Avid and see when they will be back in stock. I'm sure David is all over it, he doesn't like not having what people need.

For some reason AVIDS has been having stocking issues always bought from them but my last three orders came from other companies since they couldn't fill the whole order..
