Where can I get Bearings for a Sugino 75 Crank?
 
I'm looking for replacement bearings for Sugino 75 BB in USA.

Thanks All

Are they cartridge or ball? If they are the former just take the measurements and you should be able to find them at any online bearing supplier.

Same with the former actually.

MY ISSUE is that I am buying a Sugino 75 BB and the seller is NOT including the bearings. It looks like they are loose and go into a ring.
Never bought this type as I usually just take what the LBS has. In this case it's an upgrade for me and I hate to waste it on CRAPPY bearings.

I'm going to move this to Mechanics forum from Track Racing. You'll get good advice there.

How about not shouting, and googling? found what you need in about 5 seconds, sure you can to.

11 1/4 inch ball bearings on each side. As long as they are grade 100 or lower they're fine (some would argue 1000 is OK too. Avaliable in bike shops, bearing/industrial supply. Bike shop's best at this point, as you are unlikely to need 100's of them.

This is useful: http://sheldonbrown.com/harris/bearings.html. The only (slight) disagreement I have with Sheldon Brown is that he disses retainers for BB but if you can find a retainer that takes 11 on a side (they're out there and they used to come with a lot of high end Sugino stuff), I'd use it. Otherwise loose is good (better than the retainers that hold only 9 ball bearings).

I did google, but when you are unsure the size and or grade it's a tough hunt, too many options.. By the way thanks for the lead.

Thanks everyone for the help

loose ball, bearings in those sort of BBs dont require a retainer, you stick them in the grease,
then the axle race & threaded cups, keeps them there.

I'm kinda surprised and disappointed we got through this without even one loose balls joke.......:(

Gimme a break. There's enough people with screws loose around here.
