Product Description

Details

Ball Bearings

  • The ball bearing was originally invented as a bicycle component.
  • You still need balls to make things go round.
  • Each packet of bearings comes with sufficient ball bearings for 1 job and a wee tube of grease. For instance, the packet of 1/4" bearings will come with at least 22 balls - enough to do your bottom bracket or rear wheel.
  • While all the balls in a packet will be a consistent size, balls from a future batch may not be identical. Do not mix batches - e.g. don't overhaul your hub with 9 balls from one packet and 9 balls from another.
  • Don't worry if your original worn out bottom bracket or headset bearings originally came in a clip. You can replace the clipped bearing with loose balls. Clips are only used for fast assembly in bicycle factories. Clips can be merrily discarded.

Options:

  • 1/4" - most traditional bottom brackets require 11 x 1/4" ball bearings on each side. Most rear hubs require 9 on each side.
  • 3/16" - most front hubs require 10 x 3/16" bearings on each side.
  • 1/8" - freewheels and some pedals.
  • 5/32" - some headsets and some pedals.
  • 7/32 - some Campagnolo front hubs (Nuovo Record, Super Record, Record).

Would the one eighth size be OK to rebuild the rear hub on your Trailfinder? Hub is making a 'graunching' noise and is 'sticky' in one spot think one(or more) of the bearings has split so will need replaced I hope the cones are unscored and will not need to be replaced . Do you feel it is worthwhile disassembling the hub and hoping it is just the balls or would I be better off (in the long run) just buying a new wheel after all the one fitted is hardly top notch and the rims after nearly 2500 miles are looking a bit worse for wear.

Is there any chance the 5/32" ball bearings are 7/32"? Your commentary describes 7/32" as needed for older Campy hubs, but you don't list 7/32" and you don't describe a use for 5/32", as you do for every other size.
