ABEC 3 Hub Bearings x 50

I wasted some money on ceramics, and they went out in the hubs faster than anywhere else. WalaWala sells those too, but they definitely were NOT more durable in my experience. Now I only use them on my layshaft.

Keep in mind that most bearings are packed with grease, so if you buy these, you may want to degrease them and lube them with a light oil to avoid unnecessary friction in your drive train.
Thanks for the info man!!
