Following on from the RC50 hub thread. Bearings. Help me get my bearings (other intentional puns allowed)... :lol:

As with all things you get what you pay for... so £8 on BETD, 85p upwards on fleabay. Which will last and last and last? Any real noticeable difference?

(Anyone know of a source of SKF singularly?)

Betd do good products , but very expensive .

I'm getting some sample 6002 2rs and 6003 2rs bearing though which use ceramic bearings for use in some automotive applications. I'll see if I can get some 6001's sent though to see how they fair in the UK mud. SKF, FAG and IKO are the only brands of bearings we now use as they are the only ones that last any amount of time.
