    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    Bearings come in several sizes and are available at any bike shop. Just take one of the bearings you have so they can sell you the same size.

    Might want to check in on the Classic & Vintage forum here if you have any further questions, or would like to make some like-minded online friends.

    Just go to your Local Bike Store (LBS) They'll have them, it's an old size that most older bikes used.. DISPENSE with the research, too confusing, too much mis-information.
