Currently trying to swap out the bearings on my SS wheels - can anyone help me identify what this says? After a clean the bearing seems to be FAG 6000 PT F1116, but I can't seem to find any reference to this bearing type online...
@mdcc_tester knows his bearings. I'm normally lost.
I am with @hippy on that one.
This is just a Standard 6000-2RS bearing.
Very much like the majority of Novatec/Joytec singlespeed hubs.
You can go cheap with the plain steel ones - about £1 each in packs of 10.
But I would recommend going for stainless steel ones - about £2 each in packs of 10.
If it is a fancy wheel, you can go for ceramic hybrid (stainless steel outside with ceramic balls) or full ceramic if you are semi-pro and are into marginal gainz:
