My mistake :oops: . Had a look on google and for a while Pace were the UK importers for SKF's own brand bb's, back when isis was the way to go. I just remember them being sold as Pace/SKF bb's at the time and they were apparently the daddies.

So unless the Pace/SKF partnership is still going, buy the Hope bb :wink:

So what's the main advantage with the ceramic bearings over normal stainless? Is it just weight?
