can ball bearings have micro flat spots on them to cause them to feel notchy when u spin the wheel,when i took the bearings (loose) out of my hub and cleaned them, then to test there trueness, i let them roll on a peice of glass table, i noted that they roll all crazy like there on crack? can i expect a more trueness from grade 25 chrome steel bearings??
this is the perfect time to visit the lbs (assuming they don't suck). they should have grade 25 bearings, and pretty cheap. 2.95 for a bag of 25 from harriscyclery. should be around the same price at the lbs.
