Hello, what size cartridge ball bearings shall I buy for my Formula flip flop hubs?
Any better quality recommendations?
Do they look like this? https://www.sjscycles.co.uk/hubs-other/sjsc-double-fixed-track-hubs-with-high-quality-sealed-bearings-36-hole-polished-alloy/
Looks like 6000-2RS sealed bearing
To be certain you want to read the bearing number from the bearings in your hub. This is simple to do, remove the pre-load adjusters from the axle and then you should be able to read the number.
Google that number and you will find websites selling them, or take it to your local bearing/fastener shop.
SKF, FAG, and NSK are all recommended bearing manufacturers. I would avoid buy from eBay and Amazon due to fakes.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
