Most likely there was damage to the hub as well. I just slapped it back together with a spare axle and cone and a couple of used bearings. I apologize for the pics, but there was no air bubble. It did look like the bearing went through two separate processes where it should have only went through one. It looked like there was a smaller bearing inside a bigger bearing( perhaps premature cooling?). The rear wheel needs to be replaced anyway as there are real good flat spots on the rim. This is just a quick fix for a month or so.
There was no question for this post. I just thought that since this was the first time I witnessed split bearings. and had a camera ready, it would be nice to post it.
