Where do y'all buy your cartridge bearings?
I am need of new cartridge bearings ever since I rode my old ones into the ground. They are seized, disintegrated, toast - of no more use to me. I have found out that finding the correct sized replacements is not such an easy endeavour. All of the LBS in the fairfax county area have none of the size I need in stock, which kind of sucks becz I need them right away. Anyhow I am headed back home tomorrow - back to the 'big city' and am wondering what my chances of finding them there are. The serial number of the bearings are 5902RS, the outer race measures 25mm, the inner; 17mm and they are 5mm in width - they fit the LeVel components hub. So.. what do you all do when your hubs whine and bind? Do you just wait for the week to 16 business days that it takes to order these specialty parts, or what?
