Default Ceramic Bearings

Does anyone know if ceramic bearings need to be maintained more often than regular stainless steel ball bearings?

They shouldn't need to be, if anything you could propably maintain them less often. Just keep a good synthetic oil in them and they should last a long time.

proud- I have used hurricane sonic drops in my acer ceramic bearings for a long time. They still feel like they did when i bought them, i maintain and clean every 3 weeks just to make sure.

Hey thanks guys, I just purchased a full set from trinity for the tc3, they come with that white grease when I thought they didn't need to be greased at all since they are ceramic, I guess not. Other than that the set looks nice.
