Another point to consider is that you can spend the time to clean all your bearings thoroughly, only to discover after they've been cleaned that they still feel notchy and need replacing, so whether it's worthwhile or not is really up to the user, but like most members here, I prefer to just replace them.

Also, if you compete, why risk the potential for a bearing failure that can lead to a DNF, or worse, damage to even more expensive components?

i have taken the entire car apart and tried to clean my bearings as best as i can. they still feel a little notchy, better then before cleaning. i might just get a bearing kit from readyrollers.com, the guy who owns ready rollers lives near by and i have raced against him many times. thanks for the replies.
