Buy a sealed bearing front wheel, never have this conversation again. You will just piss your cash into the wind!
Bearings are cheap as chips... Proper maintenance is key even with cartridge bearings!
Even with fresh bearings etc, cones only one place in the country stock it would be a touch on the sealed options.
A sealed wheel starts from £60. Replace the bearings much less frequently and have a better product.
I’m just not a looseball fan, I just see poor economics. You can’t replace the cup, so unless you are constantly servicing it then you are fighting a loosing battle.
