I usually buy some SKF or NSK ones from my local bearing factor - typically about £3-4 each and not from some anonymous Chinese manufacturer...

6001 2RS.

though I've not added the XC and mono hubs, mono/XC rears where based on the Ti-Glide. I have changed Mono and many Ti-Glide bearings before and is just the same. It doesn't matter what quality bearings you get if you cannot hit the inner and outer raced evenly and at the same time while tapping them in.

for XC blowout go to http://www.hopetech.com/page.aspx?itemID=SPG165

Detailed Ti-Glide instructions are here http://www.retrobike.co.uk/gallery2/v/M ... hive/Hope/
(:oops: under Disc at the moment, I stopped after I noticed smaller images where going up, I will change and sort at some point. They are from the catalogue posting section

just type 6001 2RS SKF in ebay, that's what i did and got the four bearings posted for £11.96!
no problem to fit, although the recessed circlip was a little awkward!
job's a doddle, and SKF bearings are top stuff!
